This is a picture of the pharmacy at the clinic we volunteered with in Guatemala. We are always looking for more supplies to take with us on our return trips. This allows us to keep treatments free for all patients we see.
We are always looking for qualified healthcare professionals to come with us to Guatemala. Our mission is to help this rural community to the best of our ability. Whatever your speciality is, we can find a way to utilize your skills.
Resources and healthcare providers are scarce in this region. The closest hospital is at least 30 km away, and it is also lacking in personnel and resources. From the stories we have heard, although it is a "free" hospital most patients are turned away because they can't pay for services. We aim to take away this burden from the understaffed and underfunded hospital and help the local community with their medical needs as best we can.
After a long day of seeing patients, you can enjoy the local cuisine with a view of the beautiful lake, Petén Itza! On the weekend, you can explore the ancient Mayan ruins of Tikal or enjoy the nightlife in Flores, both of which are about a 30 minute bus ride away.
