This organization will provide service to medical missions which make regular trips to the mountains of Guatemala in order to bring medical care to the indigenous Mayans, who often live in abject poverty. Students will fund-raise, develop educational materials to be distributed to the Mayans, and publicize the medical missions to the South Florida community and beyond.
Emmaus Medical Mission is a Miami based non-profit organization that does multiple volunteer medical missions to Ecuador and Guatemala on an annual basis. Doctors, nurses, and non-medical volunteers are always welcome and needed. Additional Medical Missions to Latin America include Peru and Haiti.
