BENEFITING: Medical Mercy Missions, Inc.
Our names are Stefanie Senn and Jeff Atwood. We currently work as registered nurses on the Pediatric Critical Care Transport Team at St. Louis Children's Hospital. We are fortunate enough to have been selected to be part of a medical mission team that will visit the Solomon Islands in late July. We will travel with Flying Doctors of America and feel very fortunate to have been selected as part of the team.
On this particular mission we will perfrom oral-maxillary and ENT surgeries in the 7th Day Adventist Hospital. In addion, we will travel to various islands via boat and small commuter planes to host medical and dental clinics. Many of the patients we will see will have never had any type of medical or dental care in the past. We will also spend time teaching in the one and only nursing school on the Solomon Islands.
As you can imagine, the cost to take a 20 member team to such a remote location is astronomical. Each team member pays their own travel expense and mission fee. For this mission airfare is $2000.00 each and the mission fee is $3785.00 each. We are asking for your support to help lighten our financial burden. Every penny donated will be used to make this mission trip possible. No amount is too small to donate.
