BENEFITING: PACIFIC UNION COLLEGE
EVENT DATE: Aug 20, 2012
My name is Kristen, I have come to all, my friends and those who are willing to help, to share about my current fundraising project. I am currently attending PUC's Nursing Program and have just completed my 2nd quarter of nursing. This year i will be going on my first medical mission trip that takes me to the amazonian in Brazil. This project will offer medical, dental and health education to the isolated river communities who live in the most difficult areas along the Amazon. These populations are isolated from being able to receive proper healthcare, and I, along with PUC missions, will be partnering with other nurses, doctors and volunteers in providing to these communities much needed healthcare.
Some of the things we will be doing on this project are: medical and dental care, nutritional counseling, workshops that educate on hygiene, disease prevention, and health and wellness. THis will be a trip from August 20-30; a 10 day journey on a boat where we will carry supplies to different river communities.
I am on a journey to raise a target of 3,000 or more dallors for my school to help make this trip happen. Not only will your contributions help on the project, but also help me in beginning a dream. This is the first big medical mission trip I participate in, but definitely not the last. Thank you everyone! Anything and every little bit helps!
