What’s happening at EMI these days?


We need people for our medical team trip to Guatemala Nov. 16 to 24, 2019. Are you up for it? Are you a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, pharmacist assistant or able to help with general support? Then EMI and the people of Guatemala NEED YOU!

We need your help to make this trip happen.

GUATEMALA – Construction

In 2018 EMI sent a construction team to work with our partner, Loving Arms, to construct bathroom facilities at one of their elementary schools. Unfortunately, we were not able to complete the job and the bathrooms remain unfinished.

The local Ministry of Education has decided that these facilities MUST BE completed before the beginning of the next school year. The project requires approximately $20,000 in materials for tiling the floors and constructing the bathroom stalls. We cannot commit to completing this project until the funds are in place. PLEASE HELP us meet this financial goal.

Our fundraising goal for November’s trip to Guatemala is $20,000. Please help us help those who need medical assistance and health support.


After an amazingly successful trip in the fall of 2018 that saw our first dentist at the clinic welcomed by huge lineups each morning, we were unable to take a team in 2019. The recent political unrest in the country forced us to make this unfortunate decision to put the safety of our team and those who would visit the clinic, ahead of the obvious needs.

We are already looking at dates for the fall of 2020 but in the meantime, we have a plan for helping NOW. EMI plans to finance a team of local Haitian medical professionals to operate the clinic for one week in our absence. Our fundraising needs for this plan are $2100. Please HELP us make this possible so the people of Croix des Bouquets don’t have to wait another year for much-needed medical attention.
