donate-to-indigenous-maya-populationWe go into remote villages and treat people who would otherwise not have access to medical care. Patients needing medical follow-up or operations are referred to a private clinic and the majority of expenses are covered by G.I.F.T.

We need your help to achieve our goal. You can contribute to G.I.F.T. by donating. All financial contributions will be used to serve the indigenous population of the Lake Atitlan region. Thanks to our volunteers, the administration fees are eliminated.

You can donate to us by making out a cheque to "Lyle Waldman, MD" and mail it to our address below:
