Emmaus Medical Mission - Guatemala
Twice a year since 2001, a group of doctors, nurses, and other volunteers have been traveling to small villages in Guatemala, Central America, to provide free high-quality medical care to patients in need from throughout the country. On the Emmaus Medical Missions, they stay at Misioneros Del Camino, a home for the orphaned, abandoned, and malnourished children of Guatemala started by Mrs. Leonor Portela, better known as Mami Leo. Every child at Misioneros Del Camino is provided with love and education to help them become productive citizens of Guatemalan society and break the cycle of ignorance, poverty, and abuse from which they came. This beautiful Emmaus Medical Mission welcomes doctors, nurses, and volunteers of all religions, beliefs, and walks of life. The foundation of the mission has always been to provide love and medical care for those who have been forgotten, and to ensure that they are never forgotten again.
