Over the past year the global health community has faced repeated challenges and we know many of you have been at the front lines of fighting this pandemic. We thank you for your commitment to overcoming the COVID-19 virus and containing its spread.
While we are anxious to return to our mission of bringing healthcare to underserved communities around the world we continue to follow the advice of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to limit travel and social interactions. DOCARE global health outreach trips and rotations will remain suspended until further notice. The DOCARE Board will periodically reassess this decision to follow CDC and WHO guidance. We will consider trip leader applications on a case-by-case basis, where the proposed services will provide healthcare that may not otherwise be provided to a community – but will always err on the side of caution.
We continue to support our partner clinic in Guatemala, where local physicians and healthcare staff are on the front lines of educating the community and stemming the tide of COVID infections in the community. If you would like to donate to help us continue to support these vital efforts you can do so here.
We thank you for your support during this time as well as all your efforts during this unprecedented time.
