In November 2010, FTC Canada took a Medical Team to Guatemala.  The team provided medical and dental care to over 4000 people at 5 different locations just outside the capital Guatemala City.

The team went to a village just below the base of a recently active volcano.  They also went into a region that had been impacted by heavy rain and flooding.  The people the team saw were in desperate need of primary medical care.  Many were seeing a dentist for the first time in their lives.  For most this was a chance to get medications and treatment for ailments that really need more constant attention.  They were extremely grateful for this return visit.

The video/slide show below shows the team in action.  We set up in schools generally, transforming classrooms into clinics.  Doctors take two rooms, the dental team takes one room, pharmacy, distribution and for this trip, eyeglasses set up in their own rooms as well.  You will see all of this in the presentation below.

Thank you for your support.  Another team is preparing to head back into El Salvador for the third time in March (2011).  We will definitely see some of the same families again which is going to be a tremendous experience for everyone.  Please show your support CLICK HERE.
