Medical Service Trip

Hi everyone!

My name is Kira Winkeler and I am currently an Honors student finishing my junior year at St. Dominic Savio Catholic High School in Austin, Texas. I am on the Student Council and have competed both in Varsity volleyball and Varsity basketball. I also love volunteering at the Feed My People breakfast, where I get up at 4am and serve breakfast to the homeless before school every Thursdays.

I recently discerned interest in becoming an OB-GYN, like my Russian babushka. I came across an oversea service opportunity that will allow me to shadow a midwife in a hospital. Not only would I be in the actual delivery room with the doctors and midwives, but I would also be serving in a disadvantaged country. The trip is the first 2 weeks in July in La Romana, Dominican Republic. The organization that I will be travelling with is called Gap Medics. However, this service trip amounts to more  than I have saved up and I am reaching out to my family and friends for help. Would you please consider a small donation that will enable me to participate in this service opportunity that will further my discernment?

If I don’t reach my goal in time, the money will be donated to the Foundation for the Homeless to provide the Feed My People breakfast and to the Annunciation Maternity Home, which helps women in crisis pregnancies. 
Thank you so much in advance. Whether or not you choose to fund me, I am truly grateful for amazing family and friends!
