Medical Mission December 2021

Guatemala City, Guatemala

More than a year later than expected, 35 patients in Guatemala City will have a life-changing surgery they’ve been waiting for. In 2020, pandemic travel restrictions prevented our teams from going on a Medical Mission to one of the poorest regions in South America. A year of planning with our local partner, Partners for Surgery, went into finding patients in need, organizing their travel to Guatemala City for care, and ensuring proper after care, all to be postponed.

As the world grappled with the unknowns of the pandemic, these families had their hope taken away from them. In a country where half the population lives in poverty, we are the first head and neck relief organization to have planned a visit to Guatemala City in nearly 8 years.

These patients have waited long enough. We are committed to ensuring they get the care they need. Join us and help change their lives.

Volunteers who commit to this difficult work pay their own expenses to travel to and stay on the Medical Aid Relief Mission – an incredible testament to their dedication. Monies raised by the Foundation help support the physicians in the field with specialized equipment, supplies and instrumentation.

With your help, we can improve the local medical facilities we partner with, and never take from a community in need. Everything required to perform a staggering range of procedures is brought to some of the most logically-challenging regions of the world. 

Thank you for your support in this critical work. Your gift will save and change lives.
