MMOM will be conducting a mission to Purulhá in June, making our third annual trip to Guatemala. We are excited about the many possibilities of this new partnership in an area of great need.
We will be working with a rural clinic which shares our passion for providing free medical, dental, and vision care to those who cannot afford it.
The team will arrive Saturday 22 June in Guatemala City, travel to Purulhá on Sunday to set up, and work Monday through Wednesday in the clinic. On Thursday we hope to meet with a nearby hospital and medical school to build relationships that will enable us to perform more consequential surgeries and procedures in the future.
Thank you to everyone who is participating in and supporting this mission!

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.
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
