Our Mission

Thousands of Guatemalans die each year due to lack of health care. Hermano Pedro Social Works Foundation seeks to improve the health and well-being of those in need through our partnership with Obras Sociales del Santo Hermano Pedro. Through medical and surgical assistance, prevention programs, and care of orphaned and abandoned children and adults, Obras Sociales relieves suffering, restores health, and saves lives. Since 2001, we have been supporting the Franciscan friars from the United States.
