Health for Humanity works in partnership with other non-governmental organizations in Guatemala and Canada to maximize our effectiveness in providing the best possible health care to the most marginalized populations in Guatemala.
The following NGOs help us to achieve our goals:
Partner for Surgery seeks out patients, usually from the indigenous Mayan population living in outlying regions, who have treatable surgical conditions but no access to health care.
Faith in Practice has been instrumental in setting up the operating room at the Obras Sociales del Hermano Pedro, and the Casa de Fe – a facility in Antigua that provides accommodation for patients and their families, before and after their surgery.
Obras Sociales del Hermano Pedro Hospital Our base in Antigua, Guatemala is run by the Franciscan Order and offers many other programs in addition to surgery.
Vamos Adelante provides health services and education for the many villages on the slopes of Vulcan Fuego near Antigua.
Proyecto Payaso provides human rights and sexual health education through arts based communication methods.
Nuevo Horizonte (NH) is a model cooperative community with its own social and economic infrastructure. Community services include: a three tiered education system, daycare services, communal stores, sustainable agriculture programs, and an ecotourism centre.
