The Thiensville-Mequon Rotary Clubs established the Guatemala Medical Resources Partnership (GMRP) in 2005 to help the people living in the Department of Santa Rosa, a remote area of the country, who did not have access to adequate health care. Every year, dedicated health care providers, interpreters, and other volunteers travel at their own expense to the small village of Oliveros in Santa Rosa to provide medical, dental, vision, nutrition, and pharmacy services to the local community in desperate need of such care. In 2012, it became apparent that many of the patients also required continuing care, mostly surgery, which, because of poverty, lack of transportation, and inability to negotiate the hospital system, they were unable to access. As a result, in 2014, GMRP established the Guatemala Continuing Care Project which provides these individuals and families with the care they require. With a gift of $200, one patient is able to obtain the surgery he or she needs. To learn more go to:
