Welcome to the KCUMB Outreach blog for the 2013 trip to Guatemala! Beth and I will be posting frequent updates over the next 3 weeks as 51 KCUMB students, faculty, staff and volunteers carry out our mission to provide much-needed healthcare to people in Guatemala who have little access to the kinds of medical resources that most people in the U.S. take for granted.
We leave on Thursday, Feb. 7, and until then, there is A LOT to do, including medication sorting and packing, Spanish language lessons, and working out travel logistics. For the past few weeks, we have been busy mostly with sorting medication. Eventually, these will be packed into trunks that each student will check with their luggage.
Here are a few photos of students hard at work.
