JULY MEDICAL MISSION – GUATEMALA 2021

It has been over a year since the medical team has been able to visit Guatemala. Because of restrictions in place from the global COVID-19 pandemic, Healing Nations medical teams had to transition care to a telehealth format so that the most urgent patients could still be seen and receive the follow-up care they needed. They are now able to return with a paired down team and clinic to continue ongoing care for the families within the community.

From Dana: “Today was a wonderful day at clinic! We saw 105 patients. It was a long day though, so I can’t ask anyone to write the blog and then expect them to speak to me tomorrow! So, here is my update. A girl came to the clinic who was dehydrated and because of her symptoms, we had to treat her outside. She received IV fluids, ibuprofen, and was looking and feeling better in

We enjoyed a day of rest worshiping with our brothers and sisters at Iglesia Galilea and then visiting Hobbitenango near Antigua! From Vicki: “I’ve come here so many times and the reason I do is because I love the Guatemalan people. This group is smaller, but it seems more connected.

Clinica Day 2!

Our second clinic day is in the books! It was full of so many amazing experiences and stories to share. One highlight from my clinic day was a sweet young woman that waited ever-so-patiently outside my room while I was running behind schedule. I looked up and caught her gaze, and could just see it on her face that she was in pain. Once we finally called her name, she sat down and I

Our clinic hit the ground running this morning and we saw 96 patients today! Thanks to our amazing providers, nurses, translators, and many helpers.

Another first was implementing an electronic medical record (EMR) as prior to
