THE STORY:

Hey all! Thanks for taking the time to check my page out. Please reach out to me if you have any questions/comments!

Each year, Creighton's Institute for Latin American Concern (ILAC) office coordinates student programs and medical missions aimed at improving basic health and well being for thousands of those impoverished in the Dominican Republic. I will be spending a month in April, right before graduation, working at International Child Care, which provides home health physical therapy to the impoverished youth of Santiago. Here is the website with more information on ICC (http://spahp.creighton.edu/node/2051)

My goal with ILAC and ICC is to not just provide care, but educate to allow the people of the Dominican Republic (more specifically Santiago) autonomy from 1st world mission trip. With the recent surge in voluntourism, some parts of 3rd world countries have become dependent on these trips to provide improvements in their quality of life rather than striving to improve from within. I will be working with the Promatoras to help educate on simple techniques/exercises/activities to improve quality of life in the Barrios, slums.

However, this opportunity is not without its cost. The entire trip costs $2500 for travel, room/board, transportation, supplies, etc...The true cost is less, but the programs requests just a little bit more to help sustain the services that we provide. I don't expect to fundraise this amount of money, but even a little help will lessen the burden of this educational experience and make this opportunity I have a reality.

If you are hoping to make a tax-deductible donation, please contact me directly and I will provide you the information to donate to straight to ILAC on my behalf.

Thank you for your time!
