Medical Service Trip to Costa Rica
Organized by: Nicole Freeman
EVENT DATE Sep 08, 2014
Hi everyone! my name is Nicole and I am a pre-med college student but have decided to take the semster off because of an amazing healthcare opportunity that I would absolutely love to be a part of this September. I know, that is extrememly soon, but that is why I need your help.
This program,which is through International Volunteer Headquarters-www.volunteerhq.org is an amazing opportunity for me to learn more about my passion for international healthcare by working alongside healthcare professionals from all over the world including local healthcare professionals from San José, while serving the local San José community and the surrounding areas. Furthermore, this is an opportunity for me to become immersed in and to learn from and about another passion of mine- latin american culture. I honestly could go on and on about both international healthcare and latin american culture for days but I should probably keep this initial message short considering I have not discussed costs yet, but if you would like to talk more about either, please feel free to message me!
One thing I would like to say though before continuing on to costs is thank you so much for even reading to this point. I believe international healthcare is my calling and being able to be a part of this opportunity to serve and learn within a community would be such a blessing, and the fact that you have read this because you have come across my page on this website or someone else has shared this with you means a lot to me. Furthermore, if you believe that healthcare is a human right please support this trip and I pledge to help this happen in Costa Rica.
Furthemore, while in Costa Rica I will be working for 17 weeks. IVHQ has already calculated a total for my stay in Costa Rica for 17 weeks(September 8, 2014- January 4, 2015)- http://www.volunteerhq.org/affordable-volunteer-fees#fees152 which is $3,741.15. Furthermore, the cost breakdown of the program includes my initial airport pick-up, accomodations(host stay) and meals for 17 weeks, and project donations.
Thank you so much for all of your help! Anything you would like to give would definitely be appreciated! Please support this trip and please share with others! :)
