Medical Mission Trips
Since 2003, Refuge International has been helping people in some of the most remote areas of Guatemala.
The places we go are hard to find on most maps, but we know this is where the need is greatest. Our mission trip teams are comprised of a diverse mix of physicians, nurses, students, educators, technicians and even those with no medical background that provide equally important administrative and assistant duties in the clinics. In Guatemala, Refuge International makes every effort to adhere to the standards of professional care practiced in the United States.
