Dr. Mary and her husband have been fortunate enough to provide care in their respective fields each year while on a mission trip to Guatemala City’s Moore Pediatric Surgery Center.
The Moore Pediatric Surgery Center opened in 2011 after many prayers and donations, and began providing hope and healing to more than 3,000 children and teenagers.
The Shalom Foundation’s Moore Pediatric Surgery Center addresses the desperate medical and health needs of poor children in Guatemala. The Moore Center is utilized year-round by volunteer medical and surgical teams that provide surgeries across ten different specialties during the course of their one-week trips. These volunteer teams work with local Guatemalan medical specialists to provide the poor with thorough pre-screening care, surgical care and post-op care within our modern surgical facility. By partnering with in-country doctors and nurses for follow up treatment, the best surgical care possible is provided.
