Why is our help needed?
How do we help?
The Surgical team consists of volunteer surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and other health professionals who perform and assist in surgery on needy children with birth defects such as cleft lip and palate deformities, extra fingers or toes, and disfiguring scars due to burns or other accidents.
Dental Services team consists of dentists, dental assistants, and volunteers who visit families in remote mountain villages throughout Guatemala. Our team is able to perform restorations and sealants to preserve teeth as well as extractions on teeth that are too damaged to save. HSF teams also instruct families on proper dental hygiene.
