Brazil International Service Project

Prior to nursing school I had always aspired to travel abroad to provide nursing services to those in need. I have just been given this wonderful opportunity.

I am currently a nursing student at Chamberlain College of Nursing and have been chosen for the International Service Project to Brazil. I will be in Brazil for two weeks. While in Brazil I will be providing medical care to communities in need. The money I am raising is to help pay for my travel costs, housing, and medical supplies needed.

I will be helping a community who does not have access to regular medical care. Many of the people we will see may have never seen a doctor for care before. I will be using the skills I have learned as a nursing student to help impact lives. This will be an extraordinary opportunity to use my skills without the help of technology.

I have always had a special place in my heart for helping others. This experience will be life changing. The experience is a prize in itself, but making a difference in someone's life is the ultimate reward.
