How to travel and help people
How we are becoming better not only as a business, but also as a community.
"We have long been looking for a charitable organization that we can trust and that shares our values and mission", – Sergei Lozovoi, the founder of GenTravel recalls,
– "In 2022 we met Karina Basharova, co-founder of Health & Help. We were so impressed by the story about volunteer clinics in Guatemala and Nicaragua that we immediately realized, we should play a role in this project".
Everyone who joins a tour with GenTravel contributes to this effort. Our travellers help to make the world a little better.

This project began with a short talk between doctor Victoria Valikova and schoolgirl Karina Basharova in the emergency room of a Ufa hospital. Victoria, infectious disease specialist and tropical medicine specialist, had recently returned to Russia after a humanitarian mission in Guatemala. Watching with her own eyes how adults and children in poor villages were dying from treatable diseases like pneumonia and parasites – Victoria got the idea to build a clinic there. Karina enthusiastically volunteered to take part, although the plan seemed completely crazy at the time. In the summer of 2016, construction began on a clinic in Guatemala – the clinic recently turned 5 years old. In 2020, the girls opened the second clinic in Nicaragua.

Health & Help assists people at the locations where obtaining basic medical care is difficult or impossible. In 2021, Health & Help had 126 volunteers from 23 countries: 79 online and 47 in the clinics. Clinic volunteers alone attended to 6,000 patients in the past year. The project's mission is to become better by helping others.
GenTravel donates 2% of tour cost to Health & Help: the funds are used to purchase medications for the clinics. Thanks to this, volunteers monthly assist over 500 patients in Guatemala and Nicaragua.
