THE STORY:

I am a volunteer in Healing the Children New Jersey's Medical Teams Abroad Program. I am proud to be a member of their volunteer pediatric surgical team in Trujillo, Peru from February 1-8, 2014 to provide pro bono ophthalmology care to children in need. All 24 team volunteers pay their own air travel. Many pharmaceutical companies and medical clearinghouse organizations donate much of the supplies, instruments and medications. Yet, we still incur costs for all the necessities required to make the trip a success.

In May 2013, a Healing the Children NJ volunteer team in Peru accomplished 62 children's surgeries and provided eyeglasses to 100 children in one week. Wow! Please help me make our 2014 trip a success, so that Peruvian children in need will receive the eye care they desperately require which will impact their lives, enhance their learning capabilities and employability, and improve their physical appearance.

Your support is truly appreciated. On behalf of the children we serve, thank you.
