A wheelchair can affect the life of a child in a profoundly positive way!

The goal of this short-term, non-profit medical CME trip is to donate and deliver wheelchairs to disabled children in Guatemala.

This trip was designed so that clinicians of all specialties, along with their families and guests can take an active role in the assembly and delivery of wheelchairs.

$500 of your trip cost will go towards sponsoring wheelchair costs for two children. You will also experience the joy of delivering and fitting the wheelchairs to the children.

After we have completed the wheelchair delivery, our group will enjoy a fantastic natural history tour of some of the highlights of Guatemala. The Antigua area is absolutely beautiful and full of rich history!

This week-long trip to Guatemala offers the opportunity to give a gift that lasts a lifetime to a disabled child and the child’s family – a wheelchair.

Donating and seating children in wheelchairs is the primary focus of our trip. However, they are not the only ones receiving a gift. We, the travelers, the givers, the helpers also receive a gift that is immeasurable.
