THE STORY:

Indiana University Timmy Global Health Executive Board wrote -

Timmy Global Health at IU is dedicated to expanding access to health care for people in rural Guatemala. More than that, TGH also empowers students to make real changes for good and further develop their passion for service. On campus we hold several fundraising and advocacy events such as global dinners, the spring Glow Run, an annual benefit dinner and silent auction, the Global Health Symposium, and grocery drives for vitamins and medicine. The money we raise goes directly to our partner organization, Pop Wuj, which is a Spanish school that also runs a free health clinic in Guatemala. The yearlong efforts from our students help fund the clinic and provide it the necessary resources it needs to maintain itself. During spring break 20 IU students visit the clinic and the surrounding area to run a medical brigade. We recruit doctors, nurses, and pharmacists as well as gather the necessary materials to ensure a high standard of care for the patients. In the 2015-2016 academic school year, we expanded the number of fundraising events and raised almost $20,000. We are excited to continue our work here at Indiana University for Timmy Global Health and our community both home and abroad. Look and see what your donation can do: -$1,500 funds a surgery and follow up care for a damaged cornea -$350 funds a hernia operation for a patient referred by Timmy -$100 treats 200 patients for intestinal parasites -$50 ensures five patients get the x-rays they need -$32 provides prenatal care for an expecting mother Please consider donating for this wonderful cause. Our proceeds will go directly to support the patients we serve in rural Guatemala.
