"Our Flying Samaritans chapter at UCLA serves the rural communities of Rancho Escondido and Colonia Margarita Moran. Our program takes a unique approach to healthcare by promoting public health awareness and preventive medicine. We work to enable the people of these communities to take their health into their own hands and make healthy lifestyle choices for themselves and their families by giving them the tools, knowledge, and skills to do so. By making regular monthly trips to Rancho Escondido and Colonia Margarita Moran, we hope to vastly increase the community’s access to medical care and establish a solid relationship with the residents, encouraging them to make regular monthly checkups a part of a healthy lifestyle."

What We Do

Our organization serves the rural communities of Rancho Escondido and Colonia Margarita Moran in Tijuana, Mexico through an undergraduate, student-led medical clinic. Since Flying Samaritans at UCLA began in 2012, we have expanded our clinic to include a pharmacy, dental care, and health education classroom unit to help achieve our mission. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting travel restrictions, we have quickly adapted to safely connect with these communities by leveraging technology to provide telehealth consultations. In the present day, we have integrated these telehealth consultations into our regular monthly site visits to offer comprehensive hybrid services.
