The Arizona Flying Samaritans is a volunteer, nonsectarian, health oriented organization serving and working with the medical,
optometry and dental personnel in remote areas of Baja California Mexico to help supplement medical care for the local populations. The Flying Samaritans is a not-for-profit organization and includes chapters which operate 3 clinics in Baja Mexico. The Phoenix Chapter, based in the Phoenix, Arizona area, was formed in 1991.
Currently the Phoenix Chapter provides medical and dental care in Baja California Sur, Mexico at Puerto Adolfo López Mateos and dental care at Laguna San Ignacio. The Tucson Chapter provides medical and dental care in Baja California Norte at El Rosario. They also do a driving to clinic in Agua Prieta just over the border in Sonora Mexico
The Flying Samaritans rely totally on volunteer participation. We currently use medical physicians, dentists, dental hygienists, physicians assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, emts, optometrists, chiropractors, pharmacists, interpreters, pilots and helpers.
We also have volunteers who help as interpreters, so it is not necessary to speak Spanish in order to volunteer your talents as a medical professional, dentist, chiropractor, pilot or helper.
