Amy and Patrick's Medical Mission to Tanzania!
Organized by: Amy Young
Working as a nurse (Amy) and a microbiologist (Patrick), we have always wanted a chance to volunteer abroad and use our training to help others. When I heard about the opportunity to be a part of a medical mission team through Outreach International (which includes a physician I work with in the NICU and other medical professionals from the midwest) to Tanzania this Oct 21-Nov 5th, I could hardly contain my excitement. Short notice, yes. Amazing opportunity to serve those in need, heck yes! Our goal is $8,000 - that will cover our airfare, room and board, in country travel, work visas, med team donation (supplies), travel insurance (should we need to be extracted for unforseen emergency events), and vaccines so we avoid all those "fun" diseases like yellow fever and malaria. Thank you for even considering donating - it means more than you know!
