2020 Guatemala Medical
- May 16 2020 - May 23 2020
About the Journey
Through our partnership with 410 Bridge, this global(x) team will head to Guatemala, just south of Mexico. Guatemala is the most populous country in Central America. Amid the scenic landscapes, volcanoes, lush rainforests, and ancient Mayan ruins, the large majority of Guatemalans live in poverty. The country suffers from one of the highest income inequality rates in the world.
For this specialized medical trip, we’re looking to build a dynamic combination of doctors, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, and first responders. But, if you’re not a medical professional, we need you on this team too! You’ll be providing the important support component and focusing more heavily on the relational aspect.
The team will fly to Guatemala City, where you’ll meet a 410 Bridge team member and travel to the specific community where you’ll be serving. Drive times to the village vary and can be anywhere from two to ten hours.
This medical team will work alongside local doctors and nursing staff in medical clinics that range anywhere from pop-up tents to brick-and-mortar buildings. Your team will serve in the medical clinic each day and also have the opportunity to visit with and pray with families in their homes.
If time allows, the team may spend the final day of the trip touring the area, possibly visiting volcanoes, going to local markets, or attending a coffee ceremony.
Connecting with and providing critically needed medical support to this community is certain to be an eye-opening, impactful, and rewarding experience. If you’re interested in joining this team, apply today!
