Our Mission: Empowering our volunteers to positively impact the lives of people in need.
SERVING IN GUATEMALA FOR 35 YEARS
In 2004, HIM was performing a free medical clinic in Gualan, Guatemala. After seeing nearly 300 people, we were getting ready to close the door when a young father walked in carrying his 13 year old daughter who was too weak to walk. The entire team stood shocked as he unwrapped his 23 lb daughter, Hilda, a living skeleton. When I asked why they had waited so long to get help for their daughter, why they had not gone by bus to the hospital 2.5 hours away, they looked at me like I had two heads. That ride, they explained, would have cost $2.75. They had 8 other children who would go without food if they spent that money on one child. That day, it was decided that Gualan needed much more help and we set out to build a Nutrition Center. Since then, we have added to our Gualan Center.
"Forever changed by my mission trip to Guatemala. Being able to witness such extreme poverty and actually make a difference was overwhelming!"

“We may not be able to do it all, but at least now we’ve seen what needs to be done. We’ve gained an understanding that couldn’t be obtained any other way, and made the most beautiful friendships while doing it.”
