THE STORY:

Hello, everyone!

If you don't know me, my name is Kelly Bang and I will be participating in a medical mission trip with Good Samaritan Medical Dental Ministry (GSMDM) in summer 2016! GSMDM a non-profit Christian organization that responds to God's call to bring healing to the poverty-stricken people of Cao Bang, Northern Vietnam. For the past 16 years, GSMDM has gathered volunteers and doctors to travel to Vietnam annually for two-weeks providing medical, surgical, dental, vision, pharmacy and full diagnostic services to the poor. Since 2000 -- 50,000 people treated, 180 special needs people sponsored, and 850 major surgeries performed.

In case you didn't know, Cao Bang is located in the far North-East of Vietnam and is considered very poor compared to other Vietnamese provinces. Many of the citizens live their whole lives never been seen by a doctor and are traveling to be examined by our physicians.

I am so blessed to be given this opportunity to serve on the pharmacy and surgical teams, but I need your help! This trip is funded through donations and by members who are participating on this trip. Each member is required to cover his/her own airplane fare, room/board, and equipment, which costs roughly $1,800. If you are able to support me on this medical/spiritual journey, I would be forever grateful. Please donate directly through this site or by e-mailing me at kbang89@gmail.com. Any money raised beyond what is required will be given to GSMDM, so your support (tax deductible) will go directly to care for patients. If you are unable to financially support, please support my journey in other ways by sharing this page on your Facebook page and through prayer.

As a daughter of two immigrant parents from Vietnam, this trip means a lot to me. I believe this is my calling to return to my parents' native land and give back to those in need. Please do not hesistate to contact me if you have any questions. I thank you all for your time, consideration, and support!
