We are a team of doctors, students and volunteers that travel to various Latin American countries bringing much needed medical attention, medicine, supplies and love to under served communities.
WHY WE PARTY
WHAT'S JOSE'S HANDS ANYWAY?
Meet the Founder
For the last 6 years, friends and family of Jose’s Hands have come together to PARTY FOR A CAUSE!
In 2008, I lost my brother Jose. Right before his passing, he shared with me that he wanted to use his career as a doctor to serve on medical missions.
He didn't live to see that vision come to life, but I am.
On October 24th, 2009, I threw a big party to celebrate my 29th birthday and the launch of my 501(c)(3) non-profit, Jose’s Hands. I invited all of his friends and charged $20 at the door. That night, I raised $5,000 for medical mission trips. That’s where it all began.
That year we sent the money with medical mission trips to the Dominican Republic where medical attention was brought to over 500 Dominican and Haitian children, adolescents, women and men of under-served areas.
All of the sudden, the lives of people halfway around the world got a little bit better. They didn’t have to walk hours to see a doctor or pay money for expensive medicines. They just had to show up to a make-shift medical clinic.
7 years later, Jose’s Hands has attended 14 medical mission trips and served thousands of people with free medical attention and medicine.
I look forward to hosting you at our annual gala as we “Celebrate and Unite for Medical Missions”
