Every year my school, Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC), sends 12 hand-picked chiropractic interns to work under 2 experienced supervising chiropractors to provide FREE care to residents in rural villages surrounding Moca, Dominican Republic. This year we will be there from April 3-14. Each of the 11 days spend around Moca, we will be diagnosing and treating patients who have limited to no access to primary health care. We will work 10-12 hour days treating as many patients as we are able. In the past, there have been line-ups of people for hours waiting to receive care.
My goal is to raise $1500 towards the cause, and with your donation I believe it is possible! Funds will go to support supplies we may need such as: scrubs, topical pain ointments, diagnostic equipment, ice packs, rehabilitation equipment such as exercise bands, slings, primary first aid equipment and the list goes on! Each student also provides a donation to support the local infastructure in the Dominican, so that health care centers can be built and updated and residents can be educated in health care fields. The goal is to empower and support the country to create a sustainable health care system.
Supporting me in this journey will mean that you have a hand in helping me to share my passion for healthy living. I cannot express to you how much your donation will mean to me, big or small, it does not matter. Let's all come together to fight for the basic human right that all people deserve access to primary health care!
Yours in health,
