For 45 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.
St. Andrew’s Children’s Clinic is a non-denominational, non-profit organization, with a volunteer professional healthcare staff. The staff sees approximately 225-250 children the first Thursday of each month except July. Every October, in cooperation with Children's Surgery International and CIMA Hospital, 50-60 children (on average) have cleft palate/cleft lip surgery in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. This special mission involves volunteers on both sides of the US-Mexico border who work with the medical team to give patients smiles and a much better life. In 2017, with the help of generous donors and volunteers, St. Andrew’s Children’s Clinic provided the following:
