About the AAVia Foundation

The AAVia Foundation for the Health of Bolivian Children is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity founded in 2012 by the Malia family. The heart of the organization is based on a three decade personal and professional relationship between the Malia family, Bolivia, and the medical system in the capital city of La Paz.

By funding Bolivian-based organizations working to improve children's health, the AAVia Foundation provides support where it is wanted and needed.
