What We Do
Refuge International strives to make a difference through collaborative and sustainable programs in the areas of basic healthcare, adequate nutrition, clean water and education in rural communities of Guatemala. We also serve the homeless population here in Longview by providing a monthly healthcare clinic.
Since 2003, our volunteers and donors have changed the lives of thousands. From regular check-ups and preventative medicines to performing life-saving surgeries, our medical teams have given new hope to the people of Guatemala. We’ve brought dentists, chiropractors and technicians to their communities. We’ve built schools, trained nurses and local practitioners, dug water wells, distributed water filters and treated millions of children for worms and parasites. The need is great but so is our passion.
