  • Invite local and international physicians to participate in medical missions, teach basic and advanced first aid, and to provide other needed medical needs;
  • Support existing facilities and the creation of others, as possible;
  • Assist in the furnishing and maintenance of medical clinics and school structures;
  • Assist in the purchase of provision of supplies for students and schools-in-need
  • Create a “Sponsor A Child” Program to provide proper nutrition, safe water, quality education, family support for the extremely poor;
  • Reduce malnutrition in children in Guatemala through education and supplemental food packets
