BENEFITING: INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL RELIEF
EVENT DATE: Aug 02, 2014
In communities of Africa, like the one we will be working with just outside of Nairobi, access to medical care is limited. For too long and too often are people of these communities suffering and dying because of treatable diseases and afflictions. International Medical Relief, our host program, works to provide that necessary medical care. Medical, dental, and surgical care is provided by volunteer doctors, dentists, and other health-care professionals and well as non-medical volunteers to conduct clinics in these underserved areas. Along with acute medical and dental care assistance, volunteers like me will also be providing community health education.
