Our Impact

Scopes 4 Hope - Cuba 
By serving the MEDICC organization, StethoHope will be providing stethoscopes to medical students in Cuba. MEDICC is a nonprofit organization based in Oakland, California that has worked to promote US-Cuba health collaboration and highlight Cuba’s public health contributions to global health equity and universal health.

MEDICC facilitates mutual learning opportunities in a number of ways, including by coordinating insightful trips to Cuba for US health policymakers, educators, and practitioners; inspiring leaders of a national network of US communities to innovate for better health, thanks to their MEDICC-organized experiences in Cuba; and by serving as an institutional bridge-builder between the US, Cuban and global health institutions and organizations.

MEDICC also assists US students and graduates of Havana’s Latin American School of Medicine to return home to practice in provider shortage areas and supports US policies that facilitate greater health cooperation with Cuba for the benefit of people in both countries. To achieve a vision of health for all, MEDICC works with a global alliance of individuals who care about how others in the world live, learn, work, eat, play and receive health care.

Scopes 4 Hope -  Guatemala

Primeros Pasos is a non-profit, independent organization with a comprehensive outlook on health care. With the collaboration of health professionals, health educators, volunteers, and community leaders, Primeros Pasos offers quality and affordable health care and health education to the rural, underserved communities of Palajunoj Valley of Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. In Guatemala, some social, political, economic, and educational factors influence the ability to access quality medical care and proper nutrition. In Palajunoj Valley, the consequences of these barriers are especially felt. The Valley is home to around 18,000 people throughout ten communities where 92.7% of the population is rural, and 95% is Indigenous Quiche Maya. Despite its proximity to the closest city, Quetzaltenango, many lack access to basic services such as running water and health care. At Primeros Pasos, we aim to help communities overcome these barriers.

Scopes 4 Hope - Venezuela 

"Proyecto Mayú Foundation is a private, independent, non-profit organization that aims to offer free medical and dental care to the most remote and vulnerable rural communities in Venezuela.

The word "Mayú" means "to work together for the benefit of the community" in the dialect of the indigenous people of the Pemón ethnic group. With that word and idea in mind, this project was born from the initiative of a group of students of the Universidad Central de Venezuela (UCV) that sought to work together to offer medical assistance that is so necessary for the current humanitarian crisis that Venezuela is living in.

Together with volunteer specialists from different areas of medicine and dentistry, we move to the most challenging access areas providing free specialized treatments, education for disease prevention and collection of scientific and epidemiological data in each medical mission.
