Sam's Trip to Guatemala

Organized by: Sam Nixon

THE STORY:

It has been 7 years since I first traveled to Guatemala with my church; at the time to provide many services to the underserved Guatemalan families and schools. I have felt so fortunate to have that experience and to begin learning what it means to be a global citizen from a young age. Recently, I have been presented with the opportunity to return to Guatemala and serve those less fortunate, but this time with a new set of skills. From Feb 26th to March 6th I will be traveling to the rural city of Zacapa, Guatemala with 10 other Physical Therapy students from Thomas Jefferson University. There we will be working with an organization called Hearts In Motion to use the medical skill sets we have to help communities in the area who have little to no access to health care. These services are 100% free of charge to the patients. It is the responsibility of the volunteer to pay for the entire trip. My total cost expense is around $2000 for flight, room & board, waivers, food, in-country transportation and traveling medications. I have a goal of $500 to cover my medications, food and health insurance fee. I am asking my friends and family to donate, only if it is possible. I will greatly appreciate any amount of donations! Thank you for supporting my journey in becoming a global citizen. PS I have a goal to get every donor a souvenir. :) http://www.heartsinmotion.org/
