I'm honored and excited to be heading over to Guatemala again as part of the Guatemala Healing Hands Foundation annual service trip in hand surgery and therapy. All volunteers pay for their expenses but we help to fundraise for the cost of surgery, therapy, and educational programming. I hope you will consider supporting GHHF once again. Thank you! -Chris
