Fire Inc. Atlanta believes in the importance of giving back and making a difference in the community. This year, the team held various charity events and helped raise funds to support an Operation Smile medical mission. Multiple business joined the effort to fund a medical mission in Guatemala. However, Fire Inc. Atlanta’s determination and constant support granted them the recognition of being one of the top fundraisers! Fire Inc. Atlanta’s President, Malcolm Elavia, had the privilege to go on this medical mission trip on behalf of his company.

During the week-long mission, Malcolm helped coordinate screenings, interacted with the families, and assisted in the recovery process. He shared some details about his experience:

“Having the opportunity to go to Guatemala and see these life-changing surgeries take place was amazing. I loved getting to see first-hand the impact that our donations made on each of these patients and I am proud to be able to support such a great cause. Being able to presence these surgeries was sad but heartwarming at the same time. I really got attached to some of the kids and their families that I spent time with. The most impactful experience by far was the relationship I built with an 8 year old girl named Palisha and her family. Palisha was unfortunately not selected as a candidate for the surgery for this year, but still showed such a positive, thankful spirit to all of us who came down to help out with the mission trip. Before I left, she even gave me a framed picture of us as a gift. I’ll always remember her optimism and plan to stay in touch with her and her family in the future.”
