Canada-Guyana Outreach Mission (CANGO): Medical Mission to Guyana – 2018 Report

WELCOME TO CANADA-GUYANA OUTREACH MISSION (CANGO)

We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting confidential, compassionate and supportive medical services in Guyana. Our focus now is in the Pomeroon and Moruka Rivers serving the indigenous people of Guyana.

We are teams of dedicated health care professionals from Canada, the United States and Guyana who are passionate about providing health care to the various villages in these rivers of Guyana, in difficult areas due to the lack of roads and inexpensive transportation.
