Military Hospital Ship in Guatemala

← Back to film listing

US military staff from the hospital ship USNS Comfort are bringing medical relief and surgical care to local communities in Guatemala.

Over 270 metres long, thirty-two metres wide and as tall as a ten-story building, the former oil tanker has 12 operating rooms and half a million doses of medicine.

Throughout their mission, the surgeons perform over a thousand procedures, including a life-changing operation on Carlos, a 10-year-old boy.
