Providing Medical Care
The Guerrero Clinic provides eye, dental and other medical care to the indigent people within the state of Chihuahua and other parts of Mexico.
We serve multiple populations including Mexican, Mennonite, and Tarahumara Indians.
We provide volunteer opportunities for medical and non-medical people, adults, students (high school age and up) and families. It is a great experience for parent/child or grandparent/child to share.
While this is a Rotary clinic, volunteers participate from other service organizations such as Lions clubs, health care organizations and the general public.
Accommodations - Family run motel 2 miles from clinic on the edge of an apple orchard.
Another Successful Clinic !!
We finished our Fall 2022 Eye / Dental clinic. We had an amazing group of American and Mexican volunteers.
We performed 282 cataract surgeries. 118 pair of glasses were made. Over 350 additional patients received refraction examinations.
Our patient stories are heart warming.
A 21 yr old woman came to our clinic. She was just about completely deaf and a health issue caused early catacts and complete blindness. We successfully removed a catact in one eye and restored both vision and hope. She will return to have the other eye fixed at a future clinic. Her transformation from hopelessness to excitement was instantaneous following her post op exam.
The moments and stories are endless.
Peoples lives are changed at the clinic - both our patients' lives and our volunteers' lives.
We continue to help those who need help and have no means to help themselves.
Thinking about coming to a clinic in the next 18 months?
