Many Special Thanks To the Following:

This project was made possible thanks to the passion and support of some key partners. At this time we would like to thank Fundacao Altino Ventura and specifically Liana Ventura and Roberta Ventura. They have taken care of all the initial phases of the projects, providing doctors, volunteers supporting with meals, hotel accommodations, and welcoming the team- making us feel at home.
