Team Leaders : Ken Kirkham and Ann Thompson
The GHOH team flies to Guatemala City September 15, returns to DFW September 22. In country, we travel daily by bus from Panajachel, Guatemala to four small villages on four consecutive days. Arranged by local nonprofit mission Salud y Paz, each village prepares a clinic site, often a school or community center. In six to seven hours, we will triage over a hundred patients of all ages. Patients are then seen in up to three areas: medical, dental, and vision; as well as given three month’s supply of vitamins and prescription medications as needed as well as toothbrushes and toothpaste.
