Wings – Guatemala

Since 2001, we have reached 315,495 youth, women and men, and have prevented 286,625 unintended pregnancies. We offer services in 14 out of 22 departments (departments are similar to US States).

Each month, we provide an average of 20 pop-up clinics that provide long-acting reversiblecontraception (and surgical contraceptive procedures) throughout 10 departments. Our two mobile units have to travelup to 8 hours to reach rural communities over rough terrain. And the trucks we had were in constant need of repair.

We used our Move92 grant to help purchase a new mobile services unit truck. The vehicle was stenciled, fully retrofitted with equipment, and has been used to travel to pop-up clinic sites throughout Alta Verapaz, Chimaltenango,Escuintla, Quiché, Retalhuleu, Sacatepéquez, Santa Rosa, Sololá, Suchitepéquez, and Totonicapán.

A schedule of our pop-up clinics can be viewed online at www.wingsguate.org/jornadas.
