Medical Service Project- Guatemala

I am asking for your support with a project I’ve become involved with and which is very important to me. I have recently been accepted into the Global Public Service Academies. In just a few months, I will be traveling to Xela, Guatemala to work in a Mayan rural health clinic. 

Among other tasks, I’m going to help screen Mayan children for malnutrition and help design solutions for disabled members of the community. I’ll be working with faculty from MIT, Duke and other universities to make a real difference in an impoverished community.

The cost of my placement, training, air travel, insurance and field support for the summer is about $6,000. I am working very hard to raise the entire program fee through extra work hours, grants, and a spring break fundraising event . A donation from you by May 1 would help make it possible for me to contribute what I have to offer to a poor family or child in Guatemala.

Please take a few moments to visit the GPSA site at www.gpsa.org Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions, ideas, or if you know anyone who might be interested in this project.

Thank you so much for helping make this experience possible for me.
