VIDA: Creating Healthier Communities
Organized by: Natalie DePagter
VIDA (Volunteers for Intercultural and Definitive Adventures) is a non-profit humanitarian organization whose mission is to provide sustained health care to underserved communities throughout the world, with our current emphasis on helping the impoverished villages of Panama, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, and Costa Rica. As a member of a VIDA team, I'll be recruiting other student volunteers and medical professionals, gathering medical supplies, and then traveling overseas to perform these medical brigades. Along with providing free basic medical care, the VIDA members will visit several community projects that aim to also better the quality of life in these impoverished areas so that we will have a better understanding of another culture.
Any donations, big or small, would be greatly appreciated and put to an important mission.
