I’m raising money for my 1 week medical brigade trip to Honduras! Donations will go towards transportation, medicine and medical supplies. Every donation, big and small, will help to impact the lives of others.
What is University of Maryland's Global Medical Brigade?
Global Brigades offers 7-9 day Medical Brigades throughout the year in Honduras, Panama and Nicaragua. During a Medical Brigade, volunteers have the opportunity to take vitals and patient history in triage, shadow licensed doctors in medical consultations, and assist in a pharmacy under the direction of licensed pharmacists. Each of our partner communities receives a brigade approximately twice a year. Between brigades, our in-country team maintains relationships with the communities to provide follow-up and to conduct Community Health Worker (CHW) trainings to empower local leaders to sustain a consistent level of healthcare. Electronic patient records are collected for future visitations and to monitor overall community health trends.
Help of Donations
My goal is to raise $2,500 to fund my 1 week trip, from August 20-27, to Honduras with UMD Medical Brigade. Your donation will not only fund logistical costs such as transportation, food, and lodging, but a substantial portion will go towards bringing medicines (pills to vaccines), medical equipment, dental supplies, educational tools, and other items that are very limited in Honduras. I am reaching out to my family and friends and friends of friends and asking for your support in helping to make this dream a reality. Through your donations, big and small, we can impact the lives of those truly in need.
