Permanent housing in Bolivia

Nurse Teodocia Paredes Cabrera is a Luke Society ministry director working high in the mountains of Bolivia. Since 2011 she has partnered with the Luke Society and another nonprofit from whom she has rented her small medical clinic and also her home.

COVID-19 has forced this other partnering nonprofit to close its doors, leaving Teo without a clinic or home.

We hope to use this setback as an opportunity to help Teo in her desire to relocate her ministry to a more strategic place. The goal is to raise $40,000 so that Teo can purchase or build a simple home and small clinic in a mountain community outside of her current town of Chilimarca.

A new location will allow her to be closer to many of her medical patients who currently travel by bus to her clinic. It will allow her to continue educating the often-forgotten elderly in reading and writing as she introduces them to Jesus. Teo will be closer to the poor families, with whom she teaches prevention against simple diseases, while teaching their children Bible stories and how to pray.

Please consider helping this dear nurse, who is small in stature, yet, is having a mighty impact for Christ’s kingdom. It is our hope that this trial of losing her home and clinic may turn into a blessing to provide a more strategic location for long-term ministry growth and stability.
