Our Cause

Partner for Surgery serves with the goal to improve health, empower communities, and overcome barriers. We are on the front lines of medical and surgical care in rural Guatemala focusing on bringing quality health care and surgical solutions to where most impoverished Guatemalans live. Our service model allows us to bridge language, distance, and cultural barriers. And our health promoters, staff, volunteers, and donors all partner to ensure our programs secure the solution each patient needs, from the time we meet them in their communities until we return home with them after surgery.
