The people are warm, friendly & welcoming. Our missionary hosts are Julio & Veronica Cárdenas. A majority of the citizens speak Spanish although some speak the native dialect of Achi. We will have interpreters available to assist us.
GHO has partnered with AMG (Advancing the Ministry of the Gospel) http://www.amginternational.org for many years. We will provide surgical services at Senorita Elena Medical Center. Surgical cases will include hernias, gallbladders, prolapsed uterus, retroceles, cystoceles, etc. The hospital provides ongoing medical support but only offers surgery 2-3 times a year with visiting medical teams. Over 15,000 patients each year are given the gospel message as they receive medical and dental treatment.
We will see patients Sunday afternoon through Thursday. The rest will be travel days except for a sight-seeing day the Saturday prior to departing.
The team needs 2 General Surgeons, 2 OB/GYN Surgeons, Anesthesia Providers, 2 Scrub Techs, 2 OR Nurses / Circulators and 1 PACU Nurse.
