September 2016 Mission of Love Rehabilitation Medical
The September 2016 Mission of Love Rehabilitation medical
mission to Tecpan Guatemala was a resounding success. Mission of Love was able to
assemble a team of volunteers from all major disciplines which operate acute rehab
hospitals in the United States. An acute rehabilitation hospital delivers the most
advanced rehab care available in the country. Our all volunteer team of physician,
therapists, nurses treated over 270 patients and provided essential rehabilitation
services and equipment to the native Mayan population who otherwise have no access
to medical or rehabilitation care.
