Felicia's Medical Mission Trip to Africa
Organized by: Felicia Messier
EVENT DATE Aug 07, 2016
Hello! As many of you know, I am currently in the Accelerated Nursing program at UNE, and I have been given the opportunity to use my newly acquired skills to help those with limited medical resources. Through UNE, I have been accepted to travel to Ghana, Africa with other students and faculty for an amazing medical experience. During the trip we will be working alongside the Ghana Health Service to provide direct health services and community education for overuse injuries, open wounds, infections, and various other health issues. This medical mission trip has been successful for the past 15 years, and I am very excited to be included as we continue to make a difference for the people of Ghana.
With less than a month till the trip, I am hoping to fundraise a little more to assist with the cost! The cost for this trip is over $3000. I have been granted some scholarships for the trip, but I would greatly appreciate any donations to put towards the remaining expenses for immunizations, airfare, lodging, food, supplies, etc.
Thank you all so much!
