For 40 years, St. Andrew’s Children’s Clinic has provided free, specialized medical care to children living in Mexico who cannot get the care or afford the care they need in their home country. The Clinic is held at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Nogales, Arizona.
Andrew’s Children’s Clinic,
a non-denominational, non-profit organization, has a volunteer
professional health care staff. The staff sees approximately 200-250
children the first Thursday of each month except July. Every October, in
cooperation with Children’s Surgery International and CIMA Hospital,
approximately 45 children have cleft palate/cleft lip surgery in
Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. This special mission involves volunteers on
both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border who work with the medical team to
give patients smiles and a much better life.
