CARLOS SANTANA & THE MILAGRO FOUNDATION
Milagro benefits underserved and vulnerable children around the world by making grants to community based tax-exempt organizations that work with children in the areas of education, health and the arts. The Milagro Foundation’s diverse Board members bring a variety of expertise and insights to the Foundation. What we all have in common is a passionate belief that children everywhere deserve to live a life with full access to proper healthcare and education as well as opportunities to develop into creative human beings.
The Santana Telehealth Project will deliver family education and comprehensive clinical care to underserved children with serious medical needs in rural Mexico. Services will be provided to families needing access to health education, specialized medical evaluation and treatment for ailments, using medical imaging equipment and high definition communication technology.
The program will be one of the first of its kind to link two pediatric medical facilities sharing altruistic missions in Northwest and Central Mexico.
The Santana Telehealth Project is a collaborative effort between The Milagro Foundation and the United States Foundation for the Children of the Californias (USFCC).
The Milagro Foundation was founded in 1998 by Carlos Santana, who was born in Autlan and spent his childhood years in Tijuana, Mexico.
The USFCC was founded in 1994 by Dr. Elizabeth Jones and Dr. Gabriel Chong in response to an urgent need for a pediatric medical facility in the border region of Tijuana, Baja California and San Diego, California.
