Our Mission

We exist to help meet the basic needs and improve the quality of life of under-served Guatemalan people through health, education, and nutrition initiatives and meaningful missionary service. Together, we can make a difference!

Over the next several weeks, we'll be sharing pictures and stories from our staff members, each of whom has adapted to the changes required by this unprecedented time, and who are contributing in so many meaningful ways to Mission Guatemala's goal of "doing all the good we can!"

COVID-19 UPDATE: Last night, the president of Guatemala announced the complete closure of the country, effective immediately and lasting through Monday, May 18, at 5:00 a.m. As reason for these drastic measures, the president cited the day's record high of 176 positive tests for COVID-19 within the country, which represented a 194% increase over last week's totals.

Mission Guatemala's clinic doctor, Dra. Lidia Balán, and her husband Dr. Rodrigo Samines, have spent time over the past several weeks delivering Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) manufactured by Mission Guatemala to public medical clinics in several towns and communities throughout the Department of Sololá. We're excited to share this story from Dra. Lidia with you today!
