Volunteer at Obras Sociales del Santo Hermano Pedro - Guatemala

The residents and patients need your support!

There are many ways to help. Volunteers are an integral part of Obras Sociales which depends on them to provide extra care and attention to residents, as well as professional help such as physical and occupational therapy. In addition, volunteers provide moral support, friendship and social interaction. Short or long-term volunteers with a wide variety of skills are always needed at all of our facilities.


As a volunteer, you can help by encouraging and assisting residents with the following activities:

  • Play and recreation
  • Conversation
  • Transporting wheelchair-bound patients
  • Early stimulation for infants in the nutritional center
  • Assistance with meals and activities of daily living
  • Specialized care such as physical and occupational therapy
