Sarstun is located on the river between Belize and Guatemala. The "neighborhood road" is the river and the "highway" is the Gulf of Honduras. The nearest healthcare is two hours away by boat on the Gulf of Honduras.
Refuge International has worked with other organizations to build a clinic so there is on-going preventative healthcare in Sarstun. This clinic will serve approximately 12,000 indigenous people in the area which includes portions of Guatemala and Belize. Refuge fully funds the hospital in Sarstun. About $3000 a month provides full time health care coverage year round.
