As it turns out, now that I am an empty nester, I have a wonderful opportunity this fall to fulfill one of my dreams of participating in an humanitarian medical mission. I will be working in two outlying regions of Guyana helping to train the medical officers in the clinics there as well as helping to educate the population in prevention of common maladies such as hypertension, diabetes and in practical hygienic practices. We will be delivering medications and also tending to patients in the clinics. I have had this mission in mind since I learned of the Canadian organization Veahavta about 8 years ago. Veahavta does valuable work consistent with my personal values. The organization functions on tax deductible donations and I would like to share the work of the organization with you (https://secure.e2rm.com/registrant/startup.aspx?eventid=78967) and ask your support for caring for our fellow beings in remote parts of the world who do not have access to health care and health care education. My fundraising goal for the trip is $ 3000.
Please visit the website and consider a contribution to Veahavta that will help defray the cost of the trip. From my heart and on behalf of the under served, I thank you for your generosity.
If anyone knows of any MD, RN or pharmacist that would like to be a member of the mission which will take place October 23rd to November 7th, there are a few more spots on the mission this fall. Please let me know or speak to Melanie at Veahavta.
