EVENT DATE: Mar 09, 2013
Children shouldn't be dying of sepsis due to cavities from poor dental hygiene, however in regions with no internet access and few healthcare providers - this is the reality.
March 9th - March 16th, I will be embarking on a nursing missions trip to Guatemala. During this trip, our group will be working at local hospitals and clinics to help provide healthcare. We will also be providing health education through health lectures to various groups. Women's reproductive health lectures will be given to young female adults, while dental hygiene lectures will be given to school aged children! We have been asked to bring toothbrushes and toothpaste for the children. Our goal is to bring 300 toothbrushes, toothpastes & bottles of fluoride enriched mouthwash for these smiling faces!!
I have personally raised about $1,700 for this mission! Yippie!!!
Now, I am asking the community to help me raise $3,000!!!
Let's help these kids and the people of Guatemala, who have not.
We can do it!!! Thank you in advance!!!
