Children of The Americas

Children of the Americas, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing  medical and surgical services to indigent children and their families in rural Guatemala. Since 1987 the corporation has identified  medical needs of patients through volunteer medical/surgical mission teams and by referrals from other agencies. The teams of volunteer staff provide medical, dental and surgical services on-site in Central America within the realm of our expertise.

 We network with Guatemalan hospital administrators and physicians to share medical/surgical knowledge between cultures. Children identified on teams as having more complex or serious medical needs are referred to the United States for donated care. Those patients are placed with foster families for the duration of their stay in the United States. In addition we  coordinate shipments of donated medical equipment and supplies to be distributed to hospitals in Guatemala.

Children of the Americas remains, as always, an all-volunteer organization.
