Medical Mission Trip to Africa

Hi There! I am Christina and have been fortunate enough to have been chosen for a medical mission trip to Africa 2016! This type of work and helping those who are in such need, is my passion. Now, I just need to get there! My trip will last 12 days and we will be setting up medical clinics and seeing hundreds of villagers who would normally not receive health care. We are also making home visits, having first time mom classes, visiting an orphanage, and teaching young girls about female health. This trip is incredibly important and will impact thousands of people's lives. However, I know the greatest impact will be on my own.  

I have outlined my expenses for this trip so you know exactly what your donation goes to:

Airline tickets:  $2200          

Lodging, Food, Transportation in Africa: $1000           
                                                                                    
Entry Visa and Medical Evacuation Insurance: $200         
                                                                           
Medication and supplies for clinics/home visits:  $300         
                                                                    
Activities with Village (Kid’s day/Careworker day):  $100    
                                                                       
Storage and shipping of supplies:  $100         
                                                                                                   
Total:  $3900

This trip is to the village of Maranatha.  Maranatha is a bush village about an hour's drive from Luanshya, Zambia.  I will also be visiting a smaller, poorer village about six miles from Maranatha. Nurses for Africa has been going to Maranatha for the past four years.  This is a spiritual journey that I have waited my entire life to begin. It is here!

If you want to give directly to the fund instead of through this site, go to Nursesforafrica.net, click on "donate" at the bottom of the page, and then pick the option to donate towards a specific nurse's trip. Type my name in there and it will go directly into my account and you will receive a tax deduction form.

Thank you!
