Welcome to our website

Clinica Corpus Christi is a medical clinic and a 24 bed hospital and nutritional center for needy children and infants in Patzun, Chimaltenango, Guatemala. The goal of Clinica Corpus Christi is to continue to meet the medical needs of the area; improving the lives of many residents who would not otherwise get medical attention. In many cases this is the difference between life and death.

Sara Merdes-Judd went to Guatemala 25 years ago and saw a need. "I worked with a Franciscan Priest and the first thing we did was to buy a piece of land to house a nursery for 250 children. Then we went on to build the clinic and the hospital." There is a full time doctor on staff and many visiting doctors and dentists from the United States who volunteer their time. Clinica Corpus Christi is not affiliated with any national or international organization; they saw a need in Guatemala and began to raise funds. And Sara is an incredible fund raiser.
