Partner for Surgery

Partner for Surgery was founded in 2001 to serve as a bridge between patients in need of major health and surgical care in remote communities and the international volunteer triage and surgical teams that come to Guatemala to help the impoverished; and to educate and empower rural Guatemalans to initiate and advocate for vital health care services on their own behalf.
Medical Care for 2,000 Rural Guatemalan Families

$41,515
Raised

Indigenous Guatemalan villagers face huge barriers to medical care. Desperately poor and remotely located, they cannot access the services provided by volunteer medical and surgical teams. Partner for Surgery removes those barriers by bringing the medical care to the villagers and accompanying the villagers to the surgical sites. project reportread updates from the field
Surgery for Guatemalans with Cleft Lip and Palate
 
$12,735
$27,265
Raised
Remaining
Cleft lip and palate birth defects occur with alarming frequency in desperately poor countries such as Guatemala. An infant born with this condition cannot breast feed and may die of starvation. Partner for Surgery has pioneered a program that identifies these infants upon birth, provides in-home resources that enable the infant to thrive, and surgical interventions to correct the cleft conditions when the infant is sufficiently healthy. project reportread updates from the field
