My Financial Sherpa is proud to support Refuge International, a compassionate 501(c)(3) volunteer organization, dedicated to improving the lives of families & individuals through the collaborative development of sustainable programs in areas where health care, adequate nutrition, clean water & education are lacking or non-existent.

The Need

Refuge does not take a “one size fits all” approach. We work with individual communities to understand their way of life, identify local resources and find realistic solutions.

Most rural communities in Guatemala lack life’s basic necessities such as clean running water and access to health care and education. For children growing up in these areas, the future is often bleak but it doesn’t have to be.

In the last year alone, Refuge International volunteers and donors have:

  • Provided care for over 8,000 patients

  • Continued work on our water projects, providing safe water for remote villages

  • Procured, packed, shipped and distributed medical/educational supplies and equipment for 8 facilities

  • Performed over 250 vital surgeries

  • Funded 2 full-time school teachers

  • Operated a full-time hospital in one of the most remote areas of Guatemala

  • Treated 4 million children for parasites
