Medical Relief Trip to El Salvador

Dear Friends,

I have been selected as one of four U.S. based college students to join the SANNA-Timmy Global Health surgical team in El Salvador this summer from June 8 - 15, 2014. I will be traveling with Dr. A.J. Sood who felt that my skill set would be helpful to the team.

On this trip, our team will be providing surgical aid for children and adults who can't afford these procedures - which we often take for granted here in the States. For example, we will be helping people suffering from disfiguring burns, cleft pallets, and hand disfunction.

The cost breakdown is this:

$500 for the hotel accommodations for the week.
$20 international medical insurance for the week
$230 for supplies, water, medicines, misc costs
$200 for meals 
$50 administration fee
$800 is the estimated air fare to El Salvador

I want to reach my goal by May 1st at the latest.
