Hearts and Healing Hands

In November 2016, the Healing Hands Foundation traveled to the small village of Patzun in Guatemala for their eighth humanitarian mission.

For four days, a group of forty dedicated medical and dental physicians from across the globe donated their time, expertise and care. Ninety-five surgeries and three hundred dental procedures were performed for nearly one hundred disadvantaged and in need patients.

As a special part of this mission, Colombian photographer Andres Hernandez documented the journey, capturing moments of hope, fear and happiness from men, women and children who faced urgent medical challenges, but who would ultimately receive life changing medical attention.
