Review for Boca Costa Medical Mission, Guatemala, Melbourne Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I fell in love with the Boca Costa Medical Mission in Guatemala in 2013 when I went as a nurse to work in their clinics for the indigent Mayan people of Guatemala. I returned in 2014 and 2016 and I plan to return in the future. Jim and Dianne the founders of this nonprofit have established a relationship with the Guatemalan people based on trust and compassion. They did not want a mission that would offer a temporary solution to the people's problems. Their hope was to teach the people how to be able to be more self sufficient. They have provided partnered with a local Guatemalan doctor who has chosen to work with in the jungle instead of the city. In one village they have provided a scholarship to train a local nurse. In 2016 our team also helped to build vented cook stoves in order to improve living standards. They worked with local Guatemalans who will maintain the stoves after the team is gone. Thank you BCMM for all you do for the Guatemalan people!
