Project Huancayo, Peru

Organized by: Tammy Le

THE STORY:

As you may already know, I will be travelling on a nutrition outreach trip to Huancayo, Peru this September with the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC), a global non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children worldwide by providing medical care and health education. I am raising funds to take part in this once in a lifetime opportunity. Please share this with anyone who you think would like to support our cause!

As a volunteer with FIMRC, I have pledged to fundraise for my upcoming trip. These funds will go towards maintaining stocked pharmacy shelves, operating community health outreach programs, and hiring quality health professionals to provide care to underserved communities that FIMRC serves. In addition, these funds will also cover the cost of my housing, food, and transportation, including round-trip transportation between the airport, clinic and community sites as well as round-trip transport to my housing, allowing me to focus my energy solely on volunteering.

Our goal is to also send up to 6 nutrition students to Peru this fall to help with the country’s increasing chronic non-factious ailments that are preventable and treatable. We'll be contributing to the development of community health programs by teaching women and children about nutrition and dental hygiene to sustain their health through preventative care. Peru is still a developing country and among its poorest populations or most affected is its rural indigenous children and adults. They currently suffer from malnutrition, disease and aliments due to poor hygiene, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity along with infectious diseases usually found in developing countries.

I hope that you will consider supporting me by contributing towards my fundraising goal! Not only will this allow me to participate in this wonderful experience, but it will also allow you to actively contribute to the work that FIMRC is doing to drastically improve the lives of underserved people around the world. Thank you for taking the time to read about our mission and for any support you are able to provide - I am truly grateful for any and all contributions!

I look forward to sharing my experience with you when I return!

Warmest regards,

Tammy

We're so proud of you, Tams! Our contribution may seem small compared to the amount of work you've put into this project and what you're about to take on. Though we still hope you can take this donation and make all the difference in the world with the children's lives. Have a great trip, learn a lot, and be safe!!! :) 3 years ago
