Mojandita Curubi Health Center

This little one's mom is on the Board of the Mojandita Curubi Health Center. The Center is a cooperative effort run by the community and Board members are elected at community meetings. The Health Center, which provides medical and dental services in this rural Andean community in Northern Ecuador of about 200 families, survives on donations from supporters. The Health Center needs a new roof and other repairs but doesn't have the financial resources to pay for construction costs.

Wichana Foundation is raising funds for the Health Center and for the Muyumi Kanki Kichwa Cultural Center in Cotachi. Visit and like our Facebook page to learn more about our projects.

The Wichana Foundation was started in the fall of 2019 by Peter Bernstein, Sarah Cox and Urku Yucharik to support community-based programs in Ecuador that benefit the health, education and culture of community members. Our current primary projects are; supporting the Mojandita Curubi Centro de Salud, a rural health center just outside of Otavalo; supporting the newly formed Muyumi Kanki Kichwa Cultural Center, in Cotacachi, that focuses on teaching Kichwa (the local indigenous language) to community members, and: supporting K'allam'p, an organization that teaches sustainable agriculture, health and nutrition to indigenous communities. We are a US tax-exempt organization (501(c)(3)) so contributions are tax deductible as permitted by applicable law.
