What is geolocation and

what do we use it for?



Geolocation is a tool we use to determine which of our offices services your area by identifying the country from which you are currently accessing our bookstore. If this is not the correct country, just change the location to the country you’re in. For further assistance, contact our office.
 

Guatemala


Join us July 8 -15, 2017 as we return to majestic Guatemala for our fourth clinic with our partners The Shalom Foundation. We are excited to be partnering with The Shalom Foundation, who is based in the heart of Guatemala City.

Why go to Guatemala?

  • Half of the population is under 19 years old (making it the youngest population in Latin America). It is a country of children who are in need of medical care*
  • Almost 60% of the people live below the poverty line (15% lives in extreme poverty) — hundreds of thousands exist in extreme poverty*
  • Due to chronic malnutrition, disease and severe lack of medical services, Guatemala holds the third highest stunting rate in the world* (Over 40% of children under 5 are chronically malnourished)
  • Over 40% of the population lack access to any healthcare services* (Only 9.3 physicians to every 10,000 people)
  • Guatemala has the highest child mortality rate in Central America*
  • The needs for medical and dental care are extreme and urgent*

Medical and dental outreaches will take place in and around Guatemala City. During the outreach we will help many of the sick and hurting who would otherwise go without the treatment they need. We will set up a general medical/dental clinic and treat the patients’ needs as they present. We will also pray with all of our patients’ and give them an opportunity to receive Christ. The team will be staying in a hotel, based in Guatemala City.

The schedule* for this outreach is:

  • Saturday, July 8 - Depart home city; meet the team in US city (TBD) and fly together to Guatemala. (This is a US departure date, other countries may vary) Arrive in Guatemala. Team orientation
