The Flying Samaritans is an on-campus organization at UCR and CSUF that is dedicated to fulfilling the service of The Flying Samaritans, Inc., a registered non-profit corporation.
Both UCR and CSUF collaborate and represent the Palomar Chapter of The Flying Samaritans. Students and health care professionals travel by driving every month to El Hongo, Mexico which is located approximately 30 miles east of Tecate, Baja California.
Our purpose is to provide health care to people living in the rural areas outside of Tecate, Mexico. Volunteers have the opportunity to assist in administrating, translating, taking vital signs, shadowing health care providers, and working in the pharmacy. Also, our members get the opportunity to experience medicine and another culture first hand.
