THE STORY:

Four years ago, DOCARE opened its first clinic. It’s located in San Andres, Itzapa, Guatemala. Two years ago, our second clinic opened. This time in Chacraseca, Nicaragua. Today, we’re in the process of opening the third DOCARE clinic. Built on land donated by American expatriate, John Malone, in Tecpan, Guatemala, it hopes to open its doors in INSERT MONTH/YEAR. You can help make a difference for Guatemalans in Tecpan and its surrounding area.

The Need for a Permanent Clinic in Tecpan, Guatemala

For ## years, a DOCARE team has traveled to Tecpan to provide care to those in the region/Guatemala to provide care throughout the country. Over the years, these teams have treated several thousand people during these annual trips. It became clear that a year-round clinic was a much-needed and welcome venture.

This venture is in the initial stages of becoming a reality. Jon Mellon, an American expat, who has lived in Guatemala for years, has generously donated several acres of his farmland for DOCARE’s proposed third clinic. Right now, there is a small structure that currently serves as the clinic. While it is a small space, it is divided into three patient rooms inside.

(ADD VIDEO OF THE EXISTING CLINIC AND JOHN TALKING ABOUT WHY HE WANTS TO BUILD A LARGER CLINIC.)

As you can see, it’s not nearly enough space to treat the patient demand, and John has vowed to do all that he can to address this problem.

DOCARE has partnered with a local foundation in the country, Fuego. This organization is currently raising donations to construct housing for physicians and students who will volunteer and rotate through the site.
