Team Newfoundland, Rural Guatemala Sept ‘23
Team Newfoundland is heading back to rural Guatemala to offer medical care to the many indigenous populations in the region of Alta Verapaz from September 22-30, 2023. Our team of 15 medical volunteers represent family, emergency and women’s health specialists, in addition to a vision team supported by the Lion’s Club of Eastern Newfoundland.
In partnership with Partner for Surgery, the team will travel by bus to several rural communities to set up mobile clinics to treat men, women and children in need of care. Those in need of surgery will be triaged for a future surgical mission and those in need of eye glasses will be given glasses free of charge. The need is great in these rural areas as even access to clean drinking water is a challenge.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
