Team Broken Earth - Vancouver - Fundraiser for Guatemala Surgery Mission
Two incredible Canadian experiences up for auction!
Closing October 25, 2023 at Noon PST (3pm EST, 4:30pm Newfoundland Time)
Team Broken Earth Vancouver is returning to Antigua, Guatemala for a fourth mission from October 14-22, 2023. Our team will provide surgical care for those living in Guatemala’s most remote and under-served regions. The patients we treat are largely Indigenous Mayan people, who often travel great distances to receive pre-operative assessment and surgery by our team of specialized physicians and nurses. This year, our team will focus on providing care to those needing gynaecological, orthopaedic and general surgery. All funds raised through this auction go towards achieving these goals.
About Team Broken Earth:
Team Broken Earth (TBE) is a volunteer-driven registered medical charity (Charitable Registration #: 81660 1900 RR0001), made up of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals from across Canada. The first team started in Newfoundland, Canada in response to the dire need for medical assistance in the wake of the 2010 earthquake that levelled Port-au-Prince, Haiti, killing over a quarter of a million people and injuring countless more.
More than thirteen years removed from that devastating earthquake, the team has grown to be a nation-wide effort including not only medical missions but also educational and training missions as well as resources for infrastructure, supplies and equipment in areas where it’s needed most.
Our goal is to continue to build capacity and partnerships in the areas we serve until we are no longer needed. We continue to evolve, expand our reach, and leave an impact on our world.
