About Guatemala Healing Hands Foundation April 2024 Outreach Trip

I am excited to be going with the Guatemala Healing Hands Foundation (GHHF) on my 5th medical mission in April 2024. 

I am asking for your support. 100% of donations will go towards surgeries, therapy, education and community development (none used to cover personal expenses). My trips with GHHF have been some of the most deeply rewarding experiences I’ve lived through. I am very passionate about this cause. Your support means immensely to me and more importantly, will have a huge impact on a child’s life. 

Donations are in USD and a US tax receipt will be issued. 

GHHF is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality and availability of healthcare in Guatemala through education, surgery, therapy, and community development. This upcoming trip will be the group’s 15th medical mission. Each trip is led by a team of surgeons, therapists, anesthesiologists, and dedicated volunteers. We treat paediatric patients with congenital hand anomalies, burns and other traumas to the hand and upper extremity. 

All patients are treated free of expense. Because of the generosity of people like you, the organization has been able to impact hundreds of deserving Guatemalan families. All volunteers commit their time and expertise as well as cover personal travel expenses and the full expense of a child's surgery. 

Thank you so much for your generosity, support, and kindness. I cannot wait to tell you about my trip!
