Florida group steps in when doctor bill is bitter pill

St. Petersburg Times, May 9, 2008
Tampa, FL-based African Ambassadors began serving the community in 2003 with only two doctors, a nurse and slim funding. It has since helped nearly 2,000 patients who can't afford adequate healthcare, organizers say. African Ambassadors is a nonprofit organization that gives secondary medical support to Tampa residents. The organization also provides free healthcare to those who have insufficient health insurance or none at all. Patients pay what they can afford, which oftentimes is nothing.
