Peter Beering is the founder and Principal of Mission Coffee, LLC.The Mission historically served the medical, dental, educational, sustenance, and religious needs of the Guaymi, an indigenous people in northern Panama and southern Costa Rica, numbering approximately 125,000. The medical clinic is able to see as many as 50 patients a day and can be transported to remote sites where as many as 250 patients have been seen. The dental clinic has two chairs, an x-ray machine and a small lab.
The current focus of the Mission is the urgent need for Ophthalmic Surgery. Over 700 indigenous patients have had cataract surgery, including 85 in 2018. Indigenous workers have no sun protection and they work at altitude along the equator where the sun is strongest. The incidence of cataracts is very high but the access to ophthalmic care is very low.
