Our team is led by Jen Drees, an EMT and youth minister at Church of the Incarnation in Mantua NJ. She is joined by Elly Drees who begins her first year at Rowan University in a double major of Elementary Education and Writing with a certificate in Special Education. Chris Mellish, a paramedic with Inspira MICU and Supervisor at Gloucester County EMS, brings his expertise in prehospital care with an interest in emergency medicine in austere environments. Lisa Johnston is an EMT with GCEMS and is making her first international mission trip, hoping to spend time in both the school and hospital projects. Hannah Borochanter answers the call to take her first international mission trip, looking forward to spending time with the kids at the school and sharing her faith. This is Jen's fith trip to Uganda, and the first for the other four on the team.
We have decided to pool our fundraising efforts because of the many smaller expenses which frame this trip as well as broaden our communication with many our of acquaintances. We will also be conducting medical supply and over-the-counter medicine drives to help with patient care at the hospital. We are a faith based mission group desiring to follow Christ and make friends (and renew older friendships) on this trip.
