In late July I’ll be heading to a remote island in Asia with a Medical Team to provide relief/care to remote groups of people. The local government has been unable to support many of these peopla which has opened a door to Westerners to come in and help. (Keep in mind most of the people we will be with have never seen a Westerner let alone a Doctor.)
The team includes:
(1) Family Physician
(2) Nursing students
(5) Grunts/ Handymen / Human Pack Mules
So I’ve already covered some of the expenses, but I am looking for support for the remainder of the costs plus some of the medical portion of the trip that will impact the locals directly.
You contribution will go to a 501(c)3 called International Friendship Summit (IFS). So there are 2 main benefits to that..
-They coordinate and handle all the funds for the medical stuff.
-YOU GET TO WRITE IT OFF ON YOUR TAXES!!
Here are SOME of the things your contribution will cover:
-Medicines including Nova Cain, Anti Malaria Pills, Dental/ Surgical Equipment, Painkillers, Anti Inflammatories, Steroid Shots, Glucose strips, Blood Pressure Medication, etc.
-Smaller medical supplies that will be purchased in South East Asia such as Bandages, Gauze, Neosporin, Disinfectants, and other doctor stuff that’s above my pay grade.
-International Transportation of all the medical equipment that we can’t purchase while we are there.
-We will bring/ purchase enough supplies for the local medical teams to do follow up care for an extended period of time.
-Travel & Lodging within Asia.
-And many more!!
Thank you for your help!
