Support Our Work
We invite you to be a partner in this mission that has helped so many people and has so many more awaiting needed medical services. Please consider joining the mission team. If you can’t join us, consider a donation, perhaps in celebration of a special event, in honor of a special friend or in memory of a loved one.
The Guatemala Medical Resources Partnership is made possible through the support of Rotary Clubs and other donations.
Work with Us
A team of approximately 50 volunteers, many of them medical professionals and interpreters, participate in the mission. They spend about $1,000 of their own money for travel, room and board expenses for the week of the mission.
Guatemala Medical Resources Partnership is always seeking medical, dental and vision professionals who could offer their talents and services to the mission. The mission is also in need of interpreters, bilingual nutri-tionists and other team members.

Volunteers apply to participate in the mission in the fall.

Where We Work
Our January mission is in Oliveros, Guatemala, where in 2018 we provided general medical, dental, vision and pharmaceutical services for people of the area. More than 900 patients traveled to the four-day clinic, some traveled on foot three hours to be seen. The 2019 mission is scheduled for mid-January and will require roughly $40,000.
Support Our Work
Guatemala Medical Resources Partnership (GMRP) is a volunteer effort driven by Rotarians and non-Rotarians to provide medical, dental, vision and pharmacy services to underserved people of rural Guatemala. In January 2019 we are entering our 15th year.
