Tia uses a ‘teach them to fish’ model to train and equip villagers, who live hours from the nearest doctor. They learn to deliver babies, treat diabetes, handle first aid cases and most importantly, how to tackle their problems together, as an organized community. Our model is sustainable because the local governments commit to resupply the Tia medical kits and provide continuing education.
Thanks to generous donors, like the Ingebritson, Armstrong, Libman and Pakis families, Tia now serves around 192,000 people for less than $5 a person, including overhead.

The Tia Foundation has just hired two new doctors! Thank you to everyone who contributed monthly to bring on Doctors Cuauhtemoc and Tamarha! With their help, we will be on track to bring sustainable healthcare to over one million people by 2025.
Dr. Cuauhtemoc wanted to say, “Thanks for your supporting this project with your help we bring sustainable health care to communities. Muchas gracias for helping us empower people in their communities. Thank you so much for helping to make a big difference in small communities. Gracias, with your help, we bring a greater sense of community to people by teaching how to take care of each other. Thank you so much for helping us to help other people to help more people, which is the best kind of help.”
Dra. Tamarha wrote, “I’m very grateful to all of you who gave me the opportunity to participate in this amazing association. When I was in Med school I went to my first brigade, I didn’t know what was happening or what was I doing, I only knew that the important thing was to help people, now I realize that that was the moment when TIA foundation showed me the other way to love medicine, and for it I will be forever grateful. I am very happy to be part of this project.”
Both doctors are deeply committed to Tia’s mission and will help us to reach more people than ever. The Tia Foundation is grateful to our supporters whose monthly contributions will make a lasting difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
