Support Us

Dear Friend:

We are appealing to you to help in a great way with a contribution to those in grave need of dental care. We’re going to need all the help we can get this year because we have larger goals to meet. Because of overwhelming demand for our services on projects, we  need to bring more dental supplies and skilled help to Guatemala. Volunteers travel at their own expense, to provide critical care at no cost to those in need. Funds are required for dental supplies, equipment and transportation costs. Health Outreach needs your support now. Dedicated generous supporters like you enable dental teams to continue working – and – winning. We may even be doing what you personally would wish to do. Circumstances may prevent you from joining us so let this be an opportunity to contribute in your way.

Please note – You will be able to assign your donation in support of a particular volunteer

Is Guatemala a safe country?2021-07-06T03:13:30+00:00

Guatemala is a relatively safe country if one takes basic precautions and uses common sense. Since a peace accord was signed in 1996, Guatemala has enjoyed much less civil unrest than in the past. Some signs however are still evident. Armed soldiers patrol certain areas. These are signs that one must still be sensible.

What parts of Guatemala do you operate in?2022-07-19T03:05:33+00:00

Health Outreach primarily works in rural areas where communities are poor and health services are limited. Our Guatemalan project in 2023 will treat children in Río Dulce villages in eastern Guatemala. Quesada is in the province of Jutiapa located 115 Km from Guatemala. The health clinic is located in the village of Quesada, approximately a 20-minute drive from the hotel. Communities surrounding Old Antigua, an hour’s drive from Guatemala City. All teams will spend some time in Antigua, the newer town, as a stopover and a meeting place to collaborate. Health Outreach also operates in Honduras, specifically in communities surrounding El Porvenir.

Will there be time to travel?2021-07-06T03:16:44+00:00
