Mission to Guatemala
About The Project
Each spring for the past four years, a group of Belmont Occupational and/or Physical Therapy students have traveled to Guatemala City for a mission trip. The groups partner with The Shalom Foundation which has an established relationship with the hospital in Guatemala City through medical mission trips in coordination with Vanderbilt Medical School.
Through prior trips, the Shalom Foundation has built a Christian elementary school that helps malnourished children reach age-appropriate height and weight. In addition, several groups from Vanderbilt Medical School have assisted The Shalom Foundation with surgical procedures for children in need. As Belmont physical therapy students, we are proud to have this opportunity to serve the spiritual and rehabilitation needs of the hospital in Guatemala City. We would also like to thank the many individuals and organizations which have supported us through prayer and financial donations. May God bless and keep you.
