TALK Health&Help medical project provides a medical clinic for people living in rural areas of Guatemala. (English)
The clinic is based in a village in Momostenango, Totonicapán. We finished building our clinic one month ago and since the doors opened we have been helping people every day, providing free medical consultations in pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, prenatal care, dentistry as well as doing small ambulatory surgeries and attending childbirths.
On an average we serve 40 patients a day, most of them are women and children. We also provide the care needed for chronically ill patients including those with hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes etc. As well, we treat kids suffering from malnutrition and organize hygiene and well-living classes.
All in all we cover more than 15,000 patients. Health&Help unites volunteers for the purpose of providing Guatemalan Maya people with basic medical care. All our volunteers live at the clinic in a volunteer house. No one is paid, everyone works pro bono.
Currently we are looking for more health professionals to help us with the everyday increasing amount of patients to attend.
