Summary

We have been in Guatemala 15 years providing basic medical care to indigenous Maya. We will continue to do so as long as we can meet our budget each year. Due to the advancing age of the founder it is up to us to take on the challenge of keeping this mission viable. Thousands come to the clinic every year seeking basic medical care and receive so much more. This population needs deworming and vitamins and access to higher levels of care. This clinic needs to keep it's doors open.

Challenge

The indigenous Maya in this area are 3rd generation agricultural workers. Over populated villages and children who want education rather than the poverty experienced by their parents.

Solution

We have already been in the area 15 years. There has been a cultural change amongst the indigenous. They know they can come to the clinic without prejudice and be served in their own language. Simple parasitic diseases have been almost eradicated but sustenance is needed.

Long-Term Impact

The clinic has a great reputation and without it the folks of the Boca Costa de Solola would be forced to travel even greater distances to the cities for healthcare. We provide basic healthcare and access to higher levels of care by working with other non profits .
