Donate Now to TBE Barrie Mission to Guatemala
After three missions to Port-au-Prince, Team Broken Earth Barrie will be taking on a new challenge in the spring of 2019. The team will partner with Asociacion Companero para Cirugia (ACPC) of Guatemala, whose mission is to connect patients in need of health and surgical care in remote communities with the international volunteer triage and surgical teams as well as to educate and empower rural Guatemalans to initiate and advocate for vital health care services on their own behalf. Over the past two years, four Broken Earth teams have conducted surgical missions in Guatemala City. TBE Barrie is excited to join TBE Vancouver and Calgary in Guatemala.
