The AAHS and HSE have partnered with the following organziations for help faciliate their missions to promote global hand care and education.

Guatemala Healing Hands Foundation
Guatemala Healing Hands Foundation was born out of Lynnís Vargas Award mission.

Guatemala Healing Hands Foundation, founded by Lynn Bassini, OTR, CHT who is a dedicated member of the American Association for Hand Surgery, offers physicians, therapists, nurses, students, and volunteers the opportunity to take part in a cross cultural educational experience. GHHF aims to both educate the local medical providers and supply specialized care for the needed hands of the country. Education provided, overtime, will help the Guatemalan people to be able to care for their own with the latest medical techniques.

Numerous AAHS members volunteer for missions in Guatemala with Lynn. In addition, the American Association for Hand Surgery and Hand Surgery Endowment have been committed contributors to the organization for many years.
