PWB pledges a minimum donation of $10,000 and will match all of your donations, for a total gift to Floating Doctors of up to $40,000. These donations will help support our shared commitment to reduce the present and future burden of disease in the developing world, and to promote improvements in healthcare delivery worldwide.
Floating Doctors offers programs for doctors, nurses, dentists and other healthcare workers to volunteer their time and talents to residents in communities throughout Panama. The organization’s goals include providing free acute and preventative healthcare services, facilitating community development and capacity initiatives, reducing child and maternal mortality, promoting improvements in healthcare practice worldwide and more. Throughout the pandemic, Floating Doctors remained dedicated to its patients, maintaining chronic care patients and pivoting to delivering nutritional support to communities when supply chains and employment opportunities collapsed, leaving many of our patients without consistent food access for months.
Founded in 2009 by Dr. Benjamin LaBrot, Floating Doctors began as a small project with the goal of bringing healthcare services to isolated areas. It has since grown into an organization with international recognition that thrives via volunteer engagement, community outreach and education, extensive partnerships with local health organizations and educational systems and an adaptability that allows them to tailor care to the needs of specific communities.
