Strengthen Guatemalan medical care in partnership with US Marines
This project is fully funded. Thank you!
With the help of our donors, Spirit of America purchased $2,736.00 worth of medical equipment to a clinic in Las Vinas, Guatemala. This project not only helped improve the quality of life of the local people but also strengthened the relationship between U.S. troops and their Guatemalan partners, supporting their work to stop violent criminal organizations and put the Petén region of Guatemala on the path to stability and security.

During this deployment, they identified a clinic in the town of Las Vinas in desperate need of assistance, as it was unable to provide adequate medical care to the local community. Las Vinas is located in Petén – a remote region plagued by narco-trafficking fueled violence. This violence causes regional instability and restricts the ability of the government to provide even the most basic medical services. While most clinics in the region are underequipped, Las Vinas’ was the worst of those assessed by the team.
The clinic’s lack of equipment and supplies meant that their nurse needed to travel more than an hour each way to the nearest hospital to pick up and drop off equipment, vaccinations, and even blood samples. Far from a minor inconvenience, this deficiency hampers the ability of the clinic to provide even the most basic of medical treatment and jeopardizes the health of the community. Recognizing the urgent need this creates and the importance of supporting the at-risk population of Las Vinas, the US Marines reached out to Spirit of America for assistance.
With your support and in partnership with US Marines, Spirit of America will donate medical and office equipment to this local clinic, improving the quality of life for the people of Las Vinas who often suffer due to the drug trade. At the same time, this effort will strengthen the relationship between US troops and their Guatemalan partners, supporting their work to stop violent criminal organizations and put the Petén region of Guatemala on the path of stability and security.
