San Antonio Guatemalan Endeavor
SAGE operates under the auspices of HELPS International Inc., a non-profit 501(c )(3) charitable foundation
For the past 15 years, SAGE has taken teams of as many as 135 volunteers into the mountains of rural Guatemala to provide medical care and community development to those in need. This includes medical professionals, med and nursing students, the construction team, plus a kitchen team and translators.
Many Guatemalans never have the opportunity to receive medical care, and their illnesses often go untreated for years.
Over the course of 5 days, SAGE medical teams work to provide medical care to these Guatemalans. The team sees patients in medical clinics, dental clinic, vision clinic, and performs surgeries such as cleft palate repair.
Outreach clinics saw over 200 patients in 3 communities.
Vision Team treated over 450 patients, giving out a lot of new glasses!
Dental Team saw over 120 patients between the clinic and outreach team.
The community development team installed efficient wood stoves to replace open fires, and water filters to eliminate water-borne diseases. The end result of these efforts provided a safer, more efficient environment for 40 Guatemalan families plus 1 school, to live, grow, and face the future.
Please join us in our mission to serve the people of Guatemala.
SAGE is made possible by the tremendous support of its sponsors:
