Review for Children of the Americas (COTA), Lexington, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Again this year a group of 120 non paid volunteers headed to Guatemala to join with the caring people in Retalhuleu to help those who need medical care. With members from Guatemala, Ohio, Colorado, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and numerous other states, these people joined together to lend a hand. Many on this team have worked together for years and others were strangers. That's why it was so amazing when they immediately became such a united group all serving each other and the people of Guatemala. I have worked with Children of the Americas for twelve years and am always amazed at how this many people can pull it together in one week to set up a medical team that will see nearly 2000 patients requiring consultation with a primary care doctor, surgery, dental care, ultra sounds, prescriptions, and orthotics. We are all blessed to be a part of this endeavor.

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been privileged to work with this all volunteer group since 2006. We are called upon to serve those who are marginalized by poverty, disease or circumstance. Working side by side with the wonderful people of Guatemala, I find that we transform not only those whose needs we serve, but ourselves as well, making the world a better place one child at a time.

Review for Children of the Americas (COTA), Lexington, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

COTA is doing what most would think impossible. With no paid staff and a volunteer board, they are providing essential health care services to some of the world's most desperate and impoverished people. Volunteers donate their time and money to gather, pack supplies and to organize medical trips to Guatemala. After a year of preparation, volunteers the use vacation time and pay for travel expenses to spend a week providing medical care to those who need it most. Every dollar collected in fundraising goes directly to patient care. Money could not be better spent. I am proud to donate my time and money to this organization.
