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

Rating: 5 stars  

After three visits to Guatemala to work with Boca Costa Medical Mission, I am still awe struck at the hard work and dedication this organization provides for the people of Guatemala. I have seen first hand that Jim and Diane Thompson's efforts are making a huge impact on the lives of the people they touch with BCMM. I have been a registered nurse for 20 years and didn't understand the basic needs of the people living in Guatemala until I first visited in 2015. Jim and Diane are helping these hard working, dedicated people become healthier one life at a time. Their continued efforts to assist with much needed vitamins and medications, assistance with surgical cost and helping to educate on nutrition and diet are reaching farther and farther each year. I am amazed every time we ride up to Xojola on our bus and see the hundreds of people awaiting our arrival. Their faces light up at the site of much needed healthcare in their village. That's the moment I knew this organization was one of the best. The tireless efforts of the team to have all patients seen and given essential medications was a truly overwhelming feeling. The first two days in the village, tears would stream down my face when I thought about two people leaving their home in the US to come to Guatemala to make an impact on as many as possible. Jim and Diane's mission has changed my life forever and I look forward to being a part of this compassionate, efficient, life changing organization's mission in making the lives of the Guatemalan people better for a long time.
