May 2016 Medical Mission VideoOur 2016, sixth annual Mission of Love Medical Journey was a complete success the week of May 1.  There are no words to totally describe the week that was, but everyone who was part of this incredible life changing week was part of a higher power that allowed us to be part of healings for many. 

The thirty five patients came from far away and some only spoke their traditional Mayan language.  Never ever in their parents dreams would this even be possible without our teams, Mission of Love/ Way-bi/Metropolitan Hospital coming together to accomplish such miraculous work of love and compassion at Metropolitan Hospital. 

Just one of these surgeries alone in the United States costs anywhere from $30,000 to $90,000.  So at a minimum our six days in Guatemala City the week of May 1 was worth over 1.3 million dollars.  The evaluations took months for Doctor Edgar Moran and Doctor Frinee to do in order to have the patients prepared for our team coming to Guatemala. 

Networking was unbelievable!  Television ads were placed in Tecpan, Guatemala by the Mayor Serapio Ortonez, Maria Eugenia Villagran, Attorney General of the Nation reaching out and informing her nation of our cleft lip/ palate journey. 

Astrid went directly to the homes in Tecpan and informed, assured and brought the parents and children to Guatemala City throughout the week.  Astrid had to visit the parents of Jose, an eleven year old boy born with no nose, ten times prior to our arrival in order to build the trust that was needed for this child to have a nose made with his hip graph all in order for Jose to breath. 

Our luggage on flights from Columbus OH, Pittsburgh PA, and Seattle, WA was packed with costly surgery supplies needed in order to complete our thirty five surgeries.  Our flights were delayed and we spent hours and hours traveling.  Every one of our eleven Mission of Love volunteers used their vacation time and paid their own expenses, ALL because they wanted to leave the world a bit better for these poor helpless children.

Any amount, great or small, helps with the cleft palates surgeries that our volunteers do, giving medical care to people who have never seen a doctor, continue to build homes, hospices, schools and clinics, and continue to have the United States Air Force Reserve fly our donations of humanitarian aid to indigenous communities in need. 

The children need your support for our next Mission of Love Guatemala Trip to build a Medical/Dental Clinic and homes for Mayan Families.  Please contact usif you would like to help.

Jane Goodall and Kathleen Price

"The Mission of Love and our Jane Goodall Institute can work together to bring hope to the young people on the Pine Ridge reservation because those young people need every tiny bit of help they can get. They've had such a raw deal, and it's about time that we begin to do something a little bit more than to feel sorry for them."
