My name is Nicholas Bianchi, and I am currently raising funds to go to Cusco,
Peru to volunteer
in a health clinic.
The health care system in Peru is becoming a huge burden for its citizens. Among Latin American countries, Peru has one of the highest infant mortality rates and one of the highest mortality rates for women after childbirth. In addition, there are many regions in Peru that lack basic medicinal resources and are in dire need of help. Working in Peru this spring will help me gain valuable experience in global and especially, third world nursing practice. I'm hoping to raise $2,500.00 for my trip
where is the money going? The program that will allow me to go, International
Volunteers HQ, requires $249 for a program fee and $279 to stay with a host
family for a week who will provide me with a room and meals. The leftover funds
will be spent on my plane ticket to go to Peru, traveler's insurance, and medical
know that any contribution is appreciated no matter what! So please donate to
my cause and/or pass this along to your family and friends so we can help these
