The Adote Saúde association was founded in October 2003, idealized by Doctor Eduardo Juan Troster, inhabitant of Granja Viana – Cotia/SP, who became aware of the lack of basic needs within communities in the region and decided to create the project with the objective of supporting health actions in Cotia and Carapicuíba, reducing social inequality and promoting health for those most in need. Adote Saúde is a non-profit entity, not associated to any political party or religious entity, and does not transfer money to the institutions it assists. It initially consisted of the “adoption” itself of a health center, but, bearing in mind the lack of needs in the region, the program was extended to other institutions who work in the health and education fields.

Adote Saúde has been gaining strength and sustaining itself throughout the years thanks to the support and effort of our team, who is comprised of volunteers who donate part of their time, love and dedication to transform lives.
