Therefore, HGSCA has announced the launching of its new health initiative that will benefit medically underserved ecuadorian communities in partnership with Medical Bridges.

Dr. Pedro Arguello is leading this project and will travel to Ecuador to evaluate hospitals that might qualify to receive donations from Medical Bridges. His agenda includes a visit to Leon Becerra hospital, the Junta de la Beneficencia de Guayaquil, the Club Rotary of Guayaquil, and a women hospital in Quevedo, Los Rios, Ecuador.

Andrew Sherr, Consul of United States in Guayaquil, will meet with Dr. Arguello to learn more about the initiative.

Luis W. Moyano, President of HGSCA, expressed “We feel honored to have Dr. Arguello as part of our Advisory Board, his leadership and example has helped us grow into our potential. HGSCA would not be where it is today without Dr. Arguello and all the members of our Advisory Board.”

We thank Fran Topar, President of SOLCA Babahoyo, who coordinates the visits to hospitals and organizations in Guayaquil, and Mario Balanzategui, Director of Health – HGSCA Guayaquil, who coordinates the visit to Maternidad Rotary in Quevedo as part of HGSCA collateral benefit program.

HGSCA is a non-profit organization (501c3) created to foster cultural and educational exchange, medical assistance, tourism, art, commercial trade opportunities and good will between Guayaquil, Ecuador and Houston, Texas. We achieve these goals by establishing relations and cooperation between individuals, organizations, and institutions from the two cities.
