Santa Apolonia, Guatemala: May 27–June 3, 2018
Mission Trip Summary
Global Health Reach has partnered with local Guatemala NGOs to bring much-needed medical care to remote villages in the Guatemalan Highlands. This region, Santa Apolonia, Guatemala, has a population of 40,000 with access to only one doctor. Even when residents are able to make the long commute to the doctor, they are often ill-supplied with equipment and medicine — leaving the patients untreated and empty handed.
Clinic Logistics and Details
GHR volunteers will conduct 3 full-day medical clinics at villages in the beautiful highlands region of Guatemala (specific locations will not be disclosed for security reasons). Volunteers will be given all supplies (equipment and medicine) necessary to provide medical services. Logistics (transportation, translators, food, water, etc.) is all handled by GHR so that volunteers can focus on the patients!
Guatemala Medical Mission Cost
To cover the costs of this trip, GHR requires a minimum donation of $975 (does not include air travel to and from Guatemala City). This donation includes:
- Medical supplies and medicine for approximately 800 patients

- 4 nights of lodging in Antigua, Guatemala
- 3 meals a day
