This week, the B.R.A.V.E. Foundation sent off 2 medic units surplussed from local fire departments. Driven by volunteer drivers, they will travel more than 4000 miles through the U.S., Mexico, and in to Guatemala. Each vehicle is loaded with thousands of dollars in donated medical supplies and equipment.
Please keep our team in your thoughts and prayers as they make this long and challenging journey!
Since 1996, the B.R.A.V.E. Foundation has organized dozens of volunteer training teams to Guatemala which have significantly increased the ability of the bomberos to provide pre-hospital emergency medical care to the sick and injured in Guatemala. The Foundation assisted with the establishment of an Emergency Medical Technician Program throughout the country which is teaching the bomberos medical skills required to reduce pain and suffering.
