Care for Kenya: A Medical Mission Trip

Hello everyone! It's that time again! Time for me to head overseas to provide medical care to those who really need it. If you don't know me, my name is Kiersten and I'm a physician assistant in cardiac critical care and trauma.

Last April I went to Haiti to provide medical care, and in May 2013 I will be going to Oyugis, Kenya for 2 weeks to participate in mobile medical clinics in areas of Oyugis without access to healthcare. In Haiti my team saw over 800 patients in a week, which means this team will be seeing well over 1500 patients in May!

I can't wait to help the people of Oyugis, but I need YOUR help to get there! The trip itself is 3500 dollars and includes airfare to Oyugis, food, lodging, transportation in country, and visa fees. It does not include vaccinations and malaria prophylaxis which is why I made my goal 3600.

I would really appreciate any donations that you can make, and please forward this link to any family or friends who might be interested in donating! Please feel free to contact me with any questions about myself or the trip. I will share photos of my trip with all donors upon my return.

Thank you all in advance! Please note, for anyone local I will be doing some local fundraising events as well and may possibly be collecting medication donations.
