Organized by: Joshua Feriante

EVENT DATE Mar 21, 2016

THE STORY:

My name is Josh and I am a medical student at Lincoln Memorial University Debusk College of Osteopathic Medicine. I am part of the local Student National Medical Association chapter that has partnered with Central American Relief Efforts (CARE) to help create and sustain several pharmacies in rural Honduras. Check out the video and CARE's website to learn more about how these rural pharmacies have helped Hondurans. 

This year, I will be traveling to Honduras with several physicians and a dentist to spend spring break serving rural communities outside Tegucigalpa. The goal of this trip is to provide sustainable and meaningful service to people who are in need of basic healthcare and medicine due to their remote location. Part of the trip will be bringing additional medications to the pharmacy and holding a medical clinic on the site for several days to provide basic medical services and supplies (e.g. blood pressure, eye screenings, dental hygiene items, etc.) to local families and school children. We will also tour the communities' closest hospital in Choluteca and provide service to improve the facility.

The money that will be raised will be used to pay for my mission travel and living expenses. Funds raised in excess of the goal will be used to help another student pay for the trip or for future mission trips.

I am excited to be a part of this project that has already made a big difference for people who are in great need of improved access to essential healthcare needs. Your contribution will help make my medical mission to Honduras possible.

Thank you for your support.
