About CHIMPS....

Founded and organized by Pediatric residents, Children’s Health International Medicine Project of Seattle (CHIMPS) collaborates with a local non-governmental organization, ENLACE, to provide medical care and sustainable public health interventions in the rural community of Abelines, El Salvador. During the second annual trip this past June, CHIMPS provided medical care to hundreds of children and families. In addition, the group worked with local health committee workers to initiate long-term public health interventions for decreasing intestinal parasites and dental carries in children. Learn more about the CHIMPS program here.
