Support Justine: Honduras Medical Brigade!
Organized by: Justine Bond
EVENT DATE May 23, 2016
Global Medical Brigades is an international network that provides communities in developing nations with sustainable health care solutions. Our vision is to improve equality of life by igniting the largest student-led social responsibility movement on the planet. The goal is to empower volunteers and under-resourced communities to resolve global health and economic disparities and inspire all involved to collaboratively work towards an equal world! I will be traveling to rural communities in Honduras for one week assisting physicians and dentists in the care of Honduran civilians. I need your help to assist me in fundraising for my airfare, lodging, meal plan, and transportation for the week! I will be receiving hands on medical experience such as performing triage, processing medical records, pharmacy work, and assisting in gynecology as well as playing with the kiddos and interacting with the locals of the community! I'll even be educating children on the importance of dental hygiene and first aide! Here's some facts on Honduras and how Global Medical Brigades makes a difference: 50% of the population lives in poverty, 20% of patients have never seen a doctor outside of brigades, typically no doctor or dentist within a 20 mile radius, and with enough volunteers and doctors, the brigade tries to visit each community at least twice a year.
