Global Dental Clinic
May 18 @ 8:00 am - May 26 @ 5:00 pm
In partnership with the local community, GDR teams set up a clinic in the pueblo of Akumal. Akumal is located 105 kilometers south of Cancun and is home to indigenous Maya families who have moved to the area to find work. Volunteers stay in beachfront accommodations and walk to the pueblo each morning to work in the clinic. After five days in the clinic, participants have a free day to enjoy the beach, go snorkeling, or visit the famous ruins of nearby Tulum or Coba.
