THE STORY:

My name is Cecilia, I am a foreign trained pediatrician, not practicing in the US. I work for a hospital as a patient advocate and truly enjoy my role as it allows me t help patients smoothly navigate their health journey.

I have volunteer for several years for a local free medical clinic as an interpreter, and I know I get more than I can ever give, having the honor to hear patient’s struggles, challenges and personal stories.

I have always dream to be able to use my experience and little knowledge on a mission in Central America, as this will not only provide me the opportunity to help in any possible way, but also learn more about a culture that we understand so little about. The struggles, the reason they migrate, the limited resources, as well as a rich culture and values. And hopefully use this to foster more understanding and awareness within the great organization I work for in Oregon.

I am thrilled to be doing this with my friend Rocio! We will be working as a interpreters; we would work with staff and physicians for the four days that we see patients in a village few miles from Julapa, Guatemala. We will see about 500 patients every day. The dates of the trip are April 29-May 7, working sun up to sun down!

I am trying to raise about $2,000 for the entire trip: $110 for application fee (refunded if you don’t get on a team), $915 trip fee (which covers transportation, housing and food), approximately $800 airline cost and about $200 for some equipment/resources. The trip is organized by Faith in Practice, so any support will be tax deductible.

I would be extremely and eternatlly thankful for any support you can provide, and hope to share with you this igniting, priceless experience if I am able to reach this goal!
