GEMINI Resources

Established in 1998

This was the first GEMINI country. There have been almost a dozen GEMINI trips to Guatemala over the last 8 years.  We are now awaiting approval of a large matching grant that will be the crowning achievement of the work.  This grant will be to equip a training center in Quetzaltenango.  It will have a budget of over $50,000.00.  During the many trips to Guatemala the work has made substantial differences in the quality of health care provided and the level of emergency medicine available to the people as well as the ability to respond to natural disasters.
