I need help in funding my trip to Africa. I am a 30 year old pre-med student recently having served the military for 9 years and wanting to change careers into global medicine. Thank you for your donation!

I am writing on behalf of an organization of San Diego State University called Global Brigades. It is a 501c3 non-profit, student-led program that travels to rural countries each year to participate in philanthropic work. We, San Diego State Global Medical Brigades, are specifically organizing a Medical Brigade and will travel to Ghana with doctors to provide free health care to the citizens in January, 2013. .
Ghana is a country that is gravely underdeveloped with high poverty rates. The average level of education in Ghana is approximately fifth grade, families typically have less than three gallons of water per day to use, and 70% do not have access to proper sanitation. With your help we will be providing patients with one-on-one medical consultations, medications, vaccines, basic health education, and a women’s clinic to a community that has no medical doctor within a 20-mile radius. Without Global Brigades, these communities would not receive any of the services that we will be providing. For a majority of the people we treat, it is the only health care they receive.
