Our services and programs help older adults maintain a quality of life that matches their needs, their wants, and their abilities. Most Bacoa services are free or on a sliding-fee scale, based on the senior’s financial status. No one is ever refused services because of an inability to pay.

Working Better for our Global Community
Missionary Ventures Canada (MVC) is a Christian interdenominational organization that works with individuals and churches to bring the love and message of Christ to a hurting world. Not only do we provide opportunities for people to become actively involved in serving in projects overseas, we also implement and direct international projects through churches involving education, feeding programs, agricultural initiatives, water filtration projects, skills development and medical clinic, which address many social justice concerns in many countries. Your personal involvement and support can not only be a source of inspiration to those who live in difficult and dire situations, but also helps to bring the love of Jesus Christ to a hurting world.
The foundation of Missionary Ventures Canada is based on Great Commandments – “Love the LORD your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength – AND – Love your neighbour as you love yourself.” Love is at the core of who we are and what we are called to be – People of LOVE.
The purpose of Missionary Ventures Canada is to develop sustainable projects and initiatives, which change the lives of people so that we all may become what God has created us to be.
Missionary Ventures Canada’s overall goal is to identify, equip and empower national Christian leaders to become self-sustaining and communities to be impacted. We encourage Canadians to become personally involved in projects overseas and to implement and direct projects that change lives, families, communities and nations. This can only be accomplished through culturally sensitive practices and with the utmost respect for those whom we serve.
In terms of management, Missionary Ventures Canada’s philosophy is local responsibility, but always with outside accountability. This principle always recognizes that project management is best facilitated by the individual closest to the program or ministry.
Our world is hurting and broken and we are all called to be active participants in Reaching, Rebuilding and Restoring this broken world. We want to be a voice for the poor, by developing and overseeing projects and programs that effectively serve the needs of the poor, marginalized and forgotten.
GUATEMALA HOSPITAL EXPANSION PROJECT
MEDICAL SERVICES OF LIFE AND HOPE IN NEBAJ, GUATEMALA
Although access to quality medical care is limited in all areas, remote areas and the indigenous populations suffer the greatest. A health clinic was established in the area outside of Nebaj in 2005, but due to the overwhelming need for health care resources, the space has been far outgrown.
Presently, the clinic is fully self sustaining and staffed by 29 trained professionals, including several doctors, nurses, a surgeon, lab tech, a pharmacist and an administrator, however due to the growing need, this is not enough. A proposal to turn the clinic into a full hospital has been passed, and construction has started, however there is still much work that needs to be done. The building effort relies heavily on donations and efforts of mission teams to help to fund and finish this project.
Dehnco, along with our partner Calstone Inc., has committed to raise the funds to finish this much needed facility.
Progress is being made on the construction of the the new hospital.
