International Samaritan’s annual medical and dental mission provides assistance to the under-served and poverty stricken families living in garbage dump communities.  During the course of a week medical professionals and volunteers provide free healthcare, medicine, and vision assessment for approximately 1,000 men, women, and children.

Who:  Everyone is welcome to volunteer.  No medical or dental experience is needed, but it is preferred.

Where:  Managua, Nicaragua and Guatemala City, Guatemala

Includes:  Airfare, transportation in Nicaragua or Guatemala, housing, translators, meals (except one at restaurant), trip to local market

The Medical Team will:

  • Provide medical attention to all ages suffering from easily treatable but serious illnesses
  • Administer medicine and vitamins to clinic patients
  • Collaborate with community leaders to provide medical care to impoverished families living near the garbage dump in greatest need
  • Educate local community in the prevention of common illnesses.
  • Work with local doctors to provide follow-up care for patients.

 

“Doctors and nurses…yours is not only a profession but a vocation — the vocation to be God’s love and compassion, God’s healing power to the suffering.”

-Mother Teresa
