Student and Family Friendly Trip - This trip’s specialty is Volcano Relief, with a small component of Human Trafficking.
We welcome physicians, dentists, pharmacists, dermatologists, optometrists, ophthalmologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, first responders, dental hygienists, dental assistants, physical/occupational therapists, students, servants (non-medical helpers), and a trip photographer/videographer on all of our general medicine and dentistry trips.
We are looking for primary care providers and dentists to run a general medical and dental clinic in Guatemala. This country is known for its beautiful volcanic landscape and Mayan culture. With a population of 14 million, it is the second most populated country in Central and South America. Poverty is such an epidemic in Guatemala that if effects the vast majority of it’s citizens. Almost 80% of the population lives in poverty with 40% living in extreme poverty. Due to the recent volcano eruption our national partners have requested we make this mission for Volcano Relief. The initial emergency response leaves after the first 2-3 months and they will be left with little help and hope. Most team members will work a general clinic and not be going into the human trafficking area. There will only be a few team members who are able to work the human trafficking side of this mission. Our national partners who are working with these women are early in their ministry and as such it takes time to build their trust. We do not want to compromise this ministry and simply support it by just 2-3 providers doing some treatment and screenings. This team will be laying a foundation to develop further teams to Guatemala. This trip is family friendly and welcomes students as well.
Would you prayerfully consider whether you are being called to a ministry such as this?
