Drs. David and Laura Parajon have been serving in health ministry since 2001, sharing health, hope and healing through AMOS Health and Hope (amoshealth.org). AMOS uses an empowering approach to improving health that engages communities as full partners. They work to make sure preventive and curative health services get to remote and vulnerable communities through the training and support of health promoters who serve where there is no doctor. These promoters diagnose and treat the most common illnesses that can kill children like pneumonia or diarrhea, and promote healthy habits like eliminating mosquito breeding sites to prevent zika and dengue. They receive short-term mission teams and volunteers who work alongside AMOS to contribute to improving health for all people, and would love for your to join them in Nicaragua!
