Thank You!

Loving Arms would like to thank the team of Barb, Jeff, Fern, Leslie Ann, Cindy, and Tamara. During their time in Guatemala, they helped set up health clinics for locals, medical workshops for nursing students, as well as participating in our adopt-a-home program. Their hard work was not unnoticed as they aided more sick people per nurse than any other medical team we've ever had! We only had three nurses in the clinics while others worked in the

Friday, June 19, 2015 – Day 6

Hola from team Shredder! What an amazing day here. Our first clinic was in the mountains of Paraxaj and Chitaburuy at the school house. We saw many children today and even had time to fly kites, play paper airplanes and jump rope with them. The kids were so happy to be with us, and little Cindy was such a gem dancing with us. In the afternoon we went to Los Llanos where we set up clinic in the local basketball court. It was 35 degrees and a tad

For the first part of the morning we divided into four groups. One group went to the Elder’s Centre in Parramos. The centre for seniors is a drop-in centre. We saw and treated a total of 34 seniors. They can sit and socialize and receive a meal. The hours are from 8 am to 6 pm. The staff is very dedicated and attentive to the people dropping in. Another group went to Paraxaj. We set up our clinic in a school and saw and treated 38 people. At first

November 10, 2014 – Day 2

Our first night in Parramos was colder than expected! We all dreamt of our down filled comforters from back home. A few brave girls (Karine, Diane and Nancy) ventured out for an early morning run to warm up and take a view of our neighbourhood. Once warmed up we were ready to take our first day of clinic in San Jose Calderas, built in the valley of six volcanos and a village of about 1,000 people. On our one hour drive on a bumpy dirt road to the

Hello family and friends, Today was our last day of medical clinics here in Guatemala. In the morning, we went to a place called La Hermita, where the first group had already gone. We saw some patients that had not been seen last time. In total, we saw 86 patients. We saw a beautiful little girl who was turning 3 years old and had leukemia. We believe it was our first cancer patient. She had been diagnosed at the age of 1 and she has been going through

November 23rd, 2013 – Day 5

Buenas tardes! Well it was a very early morning for most of us today. At 4:00 am , there was a celebration going on in the city of Parramos. The people were singing loudly and shooting canons as a way to celebrate. Unfortunately, for most of us, we had no idea what was going on and everyone was awake, panicking and stressing. We later found out that this is very normal in Guatemala. We are not sure what they were celebrating but it was absolutely

November 19th, 2013 – Day 1

First night in Guatemala for most of us. We got woken up by roosters and barking dogs: not something we are used to back home! We ate a great breakfast and then got to work. We got all the medication ready for our first clinic. We bagged multivitamins, Tylenols, Ibuprofen, Antibiotics and cremes and bandages. We ate lunch and then left for our first clinic. The clinic was in Parramos, small place called Los Llamos. We were installed outdoors, somewhere

November 13th – Day 5

We started the day with some medical clinics in Parrojas, it was high in the mountains with a small morning chill. We had a great view. We were very efficient, we saw 120 patients by lunch time. After lunch we went to an elderly center to do a clinic, there was around 30 elders. Every one of them had their blood pressures and their blood sugars checked. It was their yearly check up. They only had small ailments with big smiles on their faces. They
