OUR COMMUNITIES: TENA (MISHUALLI & CHONTAPUNTA), ECUADOR
Tena, located five hours east of Quito in the Napo Province, has a population of ~20,000 people living in small, rural communities. The area is in the heart of the Amazon basin, an incredibly vast system of rivers and tributaries that eventually find their way to the Amazon River. The Napo province differentiates itself from other poor regions in Ecuador because of its disproportionately low access to healthcare, non-existent transportation infrastructure to and from many communities, and poor educational resources
OUR PARTNERs: STADLER RICHTER HOSPITAL & PATRONATO
Timmy’s programming in the Amazon Basin relies on collaboration with two partner organizations: Stadler Richter Hospital and Patronato – the local government of the Napo Province. Patronato provides trucks and other transportation services to and from hard to reach communities and serves as a liaison between Timmy and the local ministry of health. Stadler Richter provides patient referral services including labs, x-rays, and minor surgeries to the many indigenous communities that our health programs reach.
