Many families require special tests or medications that do not qualify for coverage under the national health care system (Seguro Popular), and therefore would have to forego this treatment or medication without our support. Prospective patients are referred to our organization by area physicians, hospitals, social workers, and government agencies. We also work in conjunction with area physicians, hospitals, and pharmacies to provide this care at a greatly reduced cost. Our support includes (but is not limited to) medication, lab tests, minor operations, physician care, and emergency care.
Hand-in-Hand with other Organizations
LIGA MAC with the Los Cabos Childrens Foundation
LIGA MAC Collaborates with Los Cabos Children’s Foundation (LCCF) to identify children with congenital heart diseases or cancer. When we, at LIGA MAC, are screening families that have reached out us for support, we are able to identify members of the family with health problems that qualify to be addressed to other agencies or non-profit organizations, such as LCCF. While our mission is to provide a helping hand to all those individuals that have fallen into the cracks of the National Health System, we do not have the resources for major surgeries or treatments like these. Our work as agents becomes very valuable to all our clients. To learn more about LCCF, visit www.loscaboschildren.org
Destellos de Luz
Another example of LIGA MAC working “hand-in-hand“ with other organizations is Destellos de Luz (Flashes of Light). A Monterey, Mexico based private charity association, it delivers full medical attention to low-income people who are visually impaired. Through their help, two of LIGA MAC’s clients have received medical assistance.
When working with Destellos de Luz, LIGA MAC pays transportation and helps with living costs for the boys and their Moms while in Monterey. Destellos de Luz provides housing and medical services.
