I have spent 3.5 years collaborating with Shared Beat and their outstanding director Jenny Hartsell as the Outreach and Communications Coordinator for Safe Passage where Shared Beat provides healthcare for over 550 at-risk children, their families and the community around the Guatemala City garbage dump. Shared Beat has been an outstanding partner, providing life-saving expertise and healthcare resources that help Safe Passage excel in education. The Shared Beat medical teams always provide an enormous boost for the clinic and local staff. I highly recommend supporting this outstanding organization.

Shared Beat provides medical, ophthalmology , physical therapy, dental and physical therapy care to the poorest of the poor - the dump families in Guatemala City and the poor families in rural towns surrounding the capital. The providers are all volunteers and heavily committed to the cause in terms of time and effort spent serving these populations.
The hours include long days and planning nights, but the good done is very significant in terms of well care, acute medical care, provision of glasses and dental prophylaxis ... and the gratitude from the patients/recipients is palpable.
It is nice to do good deeds for these under served populations and to feel good about the accomplishments! My volunteer time in Guatemala was most rewarding!
