THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED OUR SPRING GALA
For the past 10 years, SAGE has taken a team of approximately 85 volunteers into the mountains of rural Guatemala to provide medical care and community development to those in need.
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. This year alone, the clinics saw 1300 patients and the surgeons performed 92 surgeries!
The community development team works tirelessly to provide a makeover for Guatemalan homes, installing concrete floors in lieu of the dirt floors, efficient wood stoves to replace open fires, and water filters to eliminate water-borne diseases. The end result of these efforts provide a safer, more efficient environment for these Guatemalan families 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:
