Organized by: Ben Ema

Hello! We're Ben and Lauren, nurses headed to the Philippines in January/February to take part in a medical mission trip. Specifically we will be working in a PACU (post-anesthesia care unit) for adult and pediatric surgical patients. We have created this Facebook event to share our stories about our preparations for the mission trip and to team up to spread the word for fundraising for the mission! The mission to the Philippines is an annual trip sponsored by the Partnership in Mission, a collaboration between the Diocese of Joliet, IL, the Diocese of Borongan, Island of Samar, and the Philippines government. Together with the local Oikos nuns they provide free medical care, construction work, and social services for the poor. During the two-week-long mission, approximately 200 surgeries are performed, several house foundations are built, and hundreds of orphans are given education, food, and housing. You can read more at and can reach the Partnership in Mission office at (815) 221-6258. Each mission participant is asked to fund-raise $2800 as all services are free-of-charge to our patients. Ben and Lauren would appreciate any financial assistance you are willing to provide. Your donations will have a direct impact on the resources the mission will be able to provide for the Filipinos in need. You can mail donations payable to Diocese of Joliet Partnership in Mission, being sure to indicate Ben and/or Lauren on the memo: 16555 Weber Road Crest Hill, IL 60403
