Medical Mission: Faith in Practice


Greetings,
My name is Lindsey and I'm a Mathematical-Biology graduate from  U of H (Phi Beta Kappa) and preparing for medical school in 2019.  As a faithinpractice.org (FIP) volunteer interpreter I'm raising funds to join a medical mission in Guatemala on February 23rd.

FIP doctors need interpreters and requested me ASAP because of my Spanish to English translating skills and knowledge of the regional dialect.

Providing medical care to those most in need is a passion of mine and this mission is a great opportunity. The FIP team will greatly benefit the villages in Guatemala.


FIP Medical Mission: 
FIP is a nonprofit (501-c) that deploys medical teams to underdeveloped countries, especially Guatemala.
The field team will  provide medical clinics in areas of greatest need serving hundreds of patients each day, many of whom will travel hours to receive treatment.

Request For Contribution
As FIP volunteers, we show our initial commitment by paying our way to the mission. 

Volunteer Cost
~$110 Application
~$600 Flight
~$995 Food & Housing

Incurred Costs
~$1200  of 6 missed full days of work
~$370 "Travel" Doctor visit and vaccines
~$40 medications (inlcudes anti-malaria, etc)

Your contribution will help make this type of important work more affordable and accessible to me. Please assist my commitment to serve people of Guatemala and experience this incredible opportunity to work along side the FIP medical team.



I will be serving the community with the Village Delk team. I will share the updates from their site during my travel. We are still raising funds to cover costs of the medical supplies. See details here https://donate.faithinpractice.org/campaign/delk-village-team-563/c134295
