VAW Baltimore Medical Outreach trip to Guatemala, August 2020


Volunteer Activity Description
Join the VAW Baltimore chapter as they lead a Medical Outreach trip to Guatemala this upcoming Summer! Volunteers will work in mobile medical clinics, where they will have the opportunity to intake patients, conduct public health surveys, take vitals, shadow local physicians, work in the pharmacy, teach education classes, and much more! If you’re interested in joining, contact us for more information!

VAW at Baltimore will be opening up mobile medical clinics for local communities during their time in Guatemala.

One of the most exciting and important parts of volunteering with VAW is bringing medication to the less fortunate. In 2019, VAW treated over 35,000 patients and we aspire to treat over 45,000 in 2020. One of the things that make our mobile clinics unique is that we not only triage and diagnose patients, but also provide them with the basic medications needed. Fundraising for medications is a huge part of creating a successful mobile clinic to help the local communities with effective care.

**Note: airfare goal will be updated once flights are purchased, tentatively the week of April 6-10 2020.
