I will be leaving for Guatamala in March 2018 working with an organization called Refugee International. My hope is that given my limited resident salary I will be able to raise the funds to participate as one of the leaders of this trip.
Refuge International is entering their 14th year helping the people in some of the most remote areas of Guatemala. The mission trip teams are comprised of a diverse mix of physicians, nurses, students, educators, technicians and even those with no medical background that provide equally important administrative and assistant duties in the clinics.
Here are some of the common services we will be providing:
-Health care consultations
-Child wellness exams
-Distribution of over-the-counter and prescription medications
-Training for local providers
-Water well digging and construction
-Delivery of much needed supplies (medical, technical and educational)
