MMOM is calling for volunteers for our third annual Guatemala mission 22-29 June, 2019.
Skills needed: Medical consults, minor surgery, dentistry, optometry/ophthalmology, PA and nursing, medical and dental assistants, organizational and general skills.
Volunteers will arrange their own air transportation to arrive at La Aurora International Airport (GUA) in Guatemala City on Saturday, 22 June. They will be met at the airport and transported to a nearby hotel where the team will spend Saturday night.
Sunday morning we will travel approximately five hours by van to Huehuetenango, in the western highlands of Guatemala. We will set up at the facility that afternoon/evening and prepare for clinic days Monday through Wednesday. On Thursday we will return to Antigua and possibly build a house and/or distribute water filters on Friday (tentative).
Antigua is an engaging UNESCO World Heritage site with a rich history, cobblestone streets, markets, and stunning views. There are many activities in and nearby Antigua for volunteers wishing to arrive early or stay on after the mission concludes. Other significant Guatemalan attractions include Lake Atitlan and several Mayan ruins.
More information will be forthcoming. The approximate cost (not including airfare) is $700/person for food, lodging, security, and transportation.

In our second mission to Huehuetenango, we served over 2,000 patients, more than doubling our numbers from 2017. In addition we donated 100 water filters and built a home for a family on the outskirts of Antigua.View Photos
The biggest challenge of all, the Mayon volcano, cooperated. As you may already know, the volcano erupted again after we left Sorsogon. I am happy that many of you had a chance to relax in beautiful beaches, seen the beautiful sites of Philippines, and enjoyed the shopping and nightlife of Manila. The fond memories are still fresh. That feeling of satisfaction from making a difference in the lives of many, friendships made, education enhanced and lessons learned still linger nicely in our minds. As with past missions, the MMOM USA 2018 Medical Missions in Sorsogon and Calauag have been successfully completed despite having the smallest team ever for a major mission. The total number of patients treated by both missions is 2,574.View Photos
