Since 2009, THHF has traveled every November to Patzun Guatemala. Our relationship with the community there resulted in a group of citizens forming The Healing Hands Foundation Guatemala which facilitates logistics and local fundraising for the missions. THHFG is instrumental in our ability to reach people who lack medical services, especially dental and surgical care, which are expensive and not widely available. Many families travel 9 or 12 hours by bus to be able to access our free services. For an example of our missions there please read:
