I am coming to you to ask for some help. In March, I'll be going to Nicaragua to assist on a medical mission. Since I'm not a medical person, I'll be doing all the grunt work, so the medical professionals can keep busy seeing patients.
The organization is called Corner of Love, and serves in rural settings, going to each patient’s home or village to deliver medical, dental, and eye care. Medicine and supplies are packed each day and brought by truck, bus, horseback, or backpack to reach remote communities. One of the most important things we do is distribute anti-parasite medications where there is no potable water supply. We work alongside Nicaraguan doctors and volunteers to bring healthcare to more than fifty villages each year. Nicaragua is among the poorest countries in the Americas, and basic health care is just not available to its citizens, especially to the rural villages I'll be visiting.
