Africa Dental Mission Trip

Dear Family and Friends,

As most of you all know, I am now a third year dental student and can officially begin treating patients! I have worked extremely hard and have made multiple sacrifices to get to this point, and I know it could not have been done without all of your support, encouragement and prayers. With that being said, I have the opportunity this summer to travel with the Organization for International Development on August 6th to Nigeria and Ghana on a dental mission trip to give back to medically underserved populations in a clinical setting. On this trip, not only will I be able to gain experience as a clinician, I will also be able to have an active role in addressing health disparities within the region. As a Howard dental student, reducing the effect of disproportionate access to health care amongst populations of color is priority, therefore I am dedicated in making this mission trip a reality.

I am asking for your financial support. I am responsible for raising around $4,000 for this trip that will go towards expenses, visas, multiple plane tickets, and a membership fee. I have been actively saving money, however I understand that in order to reach my goal I will need the support of others, and I’m asking you to partner with me in my mission. Any donation would be greatly appreciated.

Please continue to pray for me during this trip and upon my return. Of course I will be eager to share with you the events from the trip, all my experiences, and how much I have grown.

Thank you for being a part of my journey to becoming the most compassionte and competent clinician I can be!

With love and gratitude,

Saeedah Ali
