THE STORY:

Hello Family!

So, Guatemala is this incredibly beautiful country with its rich culture of family, food and my favorite, Coffee - pouring out to all the ends of the world! However, 30 years of civil war have left many Guatemalans with the inability to access many necessities. Medical care being one of the greatest disparities.

Humanity First USA

 Humanity First USA has helped many Guatemalan men, women and children receive vision, dental and general medical care through multiple medical missions. Each mission is staffed through volunteers and completely funded through donations from people who also want to help the beautiful people of Guatemala. It's all pretty incredible. :) Since 2015, Humanity First volunteers and coordinators have screened for cervical cancer/pelvic infections for more than 3,000 women over five Guatemalan medical missions. Most recently, Humanity First collaborated with another organization and provided completely free, on-site cancer treatment to 19 women that were found to have cancerous cervical lesions. These under-served women are also educated on relevant topics like women's nutrition, pelvic infections, pregnancy complications, domestic violence, mental health, and more.

Why Me?

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a deep passion for community healthcare and plan to spend my life serving communities in this capacity.  The health of women and children all around the world is so blantanly ignored. I'm taking any opportunity given to help better the health, living circumstances, or self-esteem of other women without hesitation. This is an opportunity for all of us to change and possibly save lives. 

 

How can you help?

This November I sincerely hope to join Humanity First USA at the Women's Health Camp! I need your help. Through a tax-deductible sponsorship or donation towards this volunteer work, you can also make a difference. These trips are entirely funded through volunteer contributions, thus your generous donation will make our clinic a success. My goal is to raise $2200 to cover my volunteer fee and funds to cover my airfare. Any additional funds that are raised on my page will go towards the Women's Health Camp 2016. Please join me and Humanity First USA in supporting and serving the women of Guatemala and donate to this awesome cause!!!

Thank you family!
