Lauren's Trip to Serve Cusco, Peru!
Organized by: Lauren Minson
EVENT DATE Jan 10, 2015
Chi Delta Alpha is Virginia Tech's only all-female service organization. The sorority contributes to the New River Valley through numerous service efforts with various organizations. Members are required to complete at least 32 hours of service per semester.
In addition to volunteering in the community throughout the year, Chi Delta Alpha takes a week long service trip each year. In January of 2015 we plan to travel to Cusco, Peru to work with MEDLIFE. In Cusco, we will be volunteering in mobile clinics to provide basic health services, and also learn more about community needs.
As an organization we've never been out of the country for our service trip, so this is going to be a big step for us. We will be taking 13 members with the estimated cost of the trip being $1,850 per person (including airfare.) We are planning to fundraise to supplement payment for this trip and raise awareness of the issues we will be tackling. Please help support our mission by donating or just sharing the link! Thank you so much for your love, support and prayers!
