What We Do

What We Do

background.png

We provide medical and dental care to the riverside peoples in the Amazon region via a riverboat hospital adapted to reach remote communities, with a crew comprising volunteer professionals from all over Brazil.

We coordinate recreational activities, including sports, social, and cultural for children and teenagers, emphasizing the importance of proper personal hygiene, nutrition, well-being, and responsible waste disposal. Additionally, we offer guidance to adults on effective composting methods.

Testimonials of
riverside
peoples

My 8-year-old daughter used to be very afraid of going to the dentist. However, thanks to Doutores das Águas, she went and came back smiling, saying that it's important to take good care of her teeth. They are excellent professionals!
