Operación San Andrés improves the lives of people experiencing the demoralizing effects of poverty. Twice-yearly mission trips have provided medical, dental, and eye care to thousands of adults and children. Ongoing educational enrichment programs provide supplemental learning and healthy lunches for school-age children. We also support Collique's women with programs teaching responses to, and awareness and prevention of domestic violence. We also provide job skills training that enhances women’s lives, mental health, and self-esteem.
