Global Medical Brigades: Honduras

Hello everyone, I'm a Health Communications major and Public Health minor at UNC Charlotte. I am involved in the Global Medical Brigades (GMB) program at my school. We fundraise all year to raise enough money to buy medical supplies. We each are responsible for funding for our plane tickets, food, lodging and transportation to and from clinics. There we will be going to a rural area to provide medical assistance alongside doctors and dentists. These people are very far away from hospitals where it may take a 3 day walk or a bus fee that they cannot afford to get there.
Any donations will help me get one step closer to reaching out to those in great need of basic medical care.
Last year I went with GMB to Nicaragua for a week. This was my first time leaving the United States and I can say it truly was a life changing experience. I realized that many people in this world do not have so many things that we take for granted. For example, clean water, fruits and vegetables, grocery stores, hospitals, bathrooms/toilets, a floor that is not made out of dirt and a roof that is sustainable.
After going on this trip with so many other amazing people, I knew that volunteering in third world countries was one of my callings.
I am raising $1850 to cover the cost of food, lodging, transportation to and from clinics, and my airplane ticket. My goal is higher this year due to the prices ranging from year to year and also depending on which location we go to.
