Continuing the Work of Dr. Galo Grijalva - Beloved Physician and Friend

Dr. Galo Grijalva (the guy ready for fun with pediatrics on the far left and with a patient and student on the right), friend of Shoulder to Shoulder Global, made multiple travels to his birth country of Ecuador to serve the underserved children of Santo Domingo. We received news with a heavy heart that Galo passed away October 16th, 2015.   He was our friend and was loved by so many. Your donation continues the work that Galo (aka Dr. G) was so fond of doing; providing health care for  children. 100% of your donation goes directly to continue Galo's cause at the Shoulder to Shoulder Global Health Center in Santo Domingo, Ecuador. Your gift of life provides comprehensive health care to children and their families while offering service learning opportunities for hundreds of future health care workers.
