Guatemala City is home to two National Hospitals. Every year, thousands of families travel great distances – sometimes as far as 12 hours – to get medical attention that cannot be found close to their home. The Valdez family noted that many of the illnesses being treated could have possibly been prevented if basic care was sought earlier. After doing some research of different areas around the country, we were given the realization that many of these families did not have access to basic medical care and God placed the desire in our hearts to bring medical teams to the people and ofer some preventative care as well as basic treatment. In July of 2005, Kairos welcomed their first group of doctors from Lewisburg, PA, where a make shift clinic was set up in The Bible Institute in Huehuetenango, Guatemala (approximately 5 hours West of the caital city). The following year, we welcomed back a group of doctors from the same area, this time traveling East to Chuiquimula. We focused our efforts in an area called ¨the poorest of the poor¨by the government of Guatemala, in Comotan, specifically in the village of Tisepe in the area (or Caserio) of Tierra Blanca. It is here where we have been focusing our efforts for the past five years.
