Historically, ChOSEN has focused its eye surgery efforts in southern and northern Mexico. However in 2020, ChOSEN established the CHOSEN Surgery Center in Chinandega, Nicaragua. This 14,000 square foot facility is being operated by ChOSEN and should prove to be our flagship site of operations for many years to come. We graciously rely on volunteers and generous monetary donations to maintain and further increase our footprint of Christian service in this area of extreme need and poverty.
Help us continue the vital work of restoring sight to the blind and proclaiming the year of the Lord’s favor to these people in great physical and spiritual need. Whether by monetary gifts, gifts of service or both, you can make a difference. ChOSEN works as the healing hands of a compassionate God who commands His confessors to look after the needs of our impoverished and downtrodden neighbors, while at the same time pointing them to The Great Physician, Jesus Christ whose death on the cross covers over all of our sins and offers definitive healing to our sick bodies and minds!

ChOSEN is a registered 501c3 charitable organization that relies entirely on donations (cash, volunteer, and in-kind) to conduct its compassionate undertakings. ChOSEN does not charge its patients for medical care. For approximately $250, we can perform an eye surgery on an indigent patient from a developing nation to the same standards as to what is performed in the United States. ChOSEN uses <1% of its donations on administrative and fundraising expenditures. Recent independent financial audits are accessible here. None of ChOSEN’s directors receive compensation.
