This winter I am traveling to Northern Cyprus, Turkey, Jordan, Syria, Israel and Iraq to train, volunteer as a First Responder, and hopefully make connections in this part of the world. This is something that has been on my heart to do for a couple of years now and I am beyond thrilled to have this opportunity!
I will start my trip by training in Northern Cyprus for 6 weeks with a small team of people, starting at the beginning of February 2017, and will then spend the rest of the time traveling around the heart of the Middle East, ending the Trip in May in Israel.
The funds I am hoping to raise cover my round trip airfare to Northern Cyprus via Istanbul and my return trip from Israel to NY in May, and then from Cyprus to the other countries where I will be staying, volunteering and traveling. This also covers my room and board for the duration of my trip, as well as my meals and basic necessities-which I am responsible for covering. These funds will not be used to cover things such as my cellphone bill or health insurance, or the medical/trauma equipment I travel with; these things I will be paying for out of my own savings.
The deadline to raise these funds is NOW!
