GIVE(Guyana Int'l Volunteer Experience)



According to the World Health Organization, the adult mortality rate in Guyana is 379 per 1000 for males and 258 per 1000 for females. In addition the prevalence of HIV is 814 per 100,000 and the incidence of malaria is 6049 per 100,000. These statistics are far above the global averages for these ailments. In collaboration with the Davis Memorial Hospital of Georgetown, Guyana it is our goal to raise funds to bring medical, dental, and graduate students for an opportunity to serve from June 21 - June 28. Our group has aptly been named GIVE (Guyana International Volunteer Experience). It is our plan to bring needed health supplies for the medical and dental clinics as well as provide assistance to the health providers of Davis Memorial Hospital in working with the physicians, dentists, and hospital administrators in addressing the health needs of the locale. We hope to establish a long lasting relationship with Davis Memorial Hospital and the country of Guyana as we give our students practical experiences in our service to mankind.

Last year, with your support, we were able to organize a successful medical mission trip to Haiti. We were able to bring much needed supplies to one of the largest Tuberculosis Clinics in the country. Our actvities can be seen in the video that is on this page. With your assistance we would like to have similar success in meeting our goals for this trip. We humbly ask for your monetary support and thank you in advance for your generosity. Upon our return, pictures, videos, and documentation will be provided so that you can see where your support went.

THANK YOU!
