    Our mission is to build clinics in remote areas and provide health care services to people with little or no access to them.

    In 2017 we built a free clinic in the village of Chuinajtajuyup, Momostenango, Totonicapán region, Guatemala. We are the nearest health post for an indigenous K'iche' Maya community of 20,000+ people. Every day our doctors see more than 60 patients. We provide basic medical services in the field of pediatrics, preventive care, health education, obstetrics and gynecology. We prescribe and distribute medications, perform minor surgeries with local anesthesia, consult pregnant women and deliver babies, supervise several medical programs on child malnutrition, birth control, type I diabetes and pregnancy care as well as give educational lectures on hygiene and healthy diet.

    Majority of clinic’s staff is the volunteers, there are the following positions that you can volunteer with us:

    Spanish-English or Spanish-Russian tutor and/or translator - at least 1 week
    - Interpreting into Spanish and English while escorting doctors and nurses at the clinic and during house calls;
