The Guerrero Clinic provides eye, dental and other medical care to the indigent people within the state of Chihuahua and other parts of Mexico.
We serve multiple populations including Mexican, Mennonite, and Tarahumara Indians.
We provide volunteer opportunities for medical and non-medical people, adults, students (high school age and up) and families. It is a great experience for parent/child or grandparent/child to share.
While this is a Rotary clinic, volunteers participate from other service organizations such as Lions clubs, health care organizations and the general public.

Another Successful Clinic !!
We just finished our Spring 2022 Eye / Dental clinic. We had an amazing group of American and Mexican volunteers.
We performed 247 cataract and 3 pterygium surgeries. An additional 350 patients received refraction examinations.
Our patient stories are heart wrending.
There was a married couple who were both blind. The wife had cataract surgery and saw her husband for the first time when her patch was removed. Her reaction was priceless.
A 35 year old mother saw her youngest child for the first time.
The moments and stories are endless.
Peoples lives are changed at the clinic - both our patients' lives and our volunteers' lives.
Since August of 2021, we have successfully and safely navigated through COVID with changed protocols and procedures. We continue to help those who need help and have no means to help themselves.
