Guatemala Trip 2017
We were fortunate to return to Guatemala on the Shepherd of the Hills Church Guatemala trip. Other groups focused on maintaining clean water purification systems, working at and spending time with the students and staff at the Hogar Miguel Magone and Escuela San Bartolome. These photos are primarily from the lay midwife training program, which is supported by the Nancy and Hilary Guatemala Health and Education Foundation.
Pediatric resident physician Dr. Ben Silva co-taught the program.
