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

Rating: 5 stars  

Children of the Americas is a phenomenal organization made up of the most caring and selfless group of volunteers. Every January, we have the amazing privilege of providing medical and surgical care to the women and children in a different Guatemalan village. It is a trip that refuels my soul in a way that nothing else in my life does.

Rating: 5 stars  

Incredible organization composed of selfless people working toward improving the health of indigent women and children in remote areas of Guatemala. Volunteers are from all over the United States and Guatemala and come together once a year to provide medical and surgical care to needy Guatemalans. Volunteers include physicians, anesthesiologists, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, nurse practioners, nurses, scrub techs, pharmacists, translators, etc. COTA volunteers perform orthopedic, gynecological, general and plastic surgery at no cost, truly providing a better quality of life to those they help.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I traveled with COTA for the first time in January 2018. To say that I was impressed is an understatement. The work that this team does is no less than life changing. I am very grateful for the opportunity to work alongside all of the COTA volunteers and to serve the people of Guatemala. My biggest regret is not joining the team sooner. I fully intend to serve again next year.
