Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! Your contributions are greatly appreciated in helping to make this trip possible for me!
Natural Doctors International (NDI) is an organization that provides under-served communities free medical care from naturopathic physicians, chiropractic physicians, and other medical providers. The mission of NDI is to promote global health and social justice through natural medicines.
I have the oppurtunity to travel to Nicaragua for 10 days with the NDI program in April with some of my classmates. I'll be working with ND's and DC's at a clinic on Ometepe Island. The clinic is the main healthcare provider to the people on the island and is free to the community. I will also be working in the field on various projects and attending a health course on Natural Medicine in Global Health.
During my stay I will be living with locals who offer their homes and food to clinic volunteers. It's a poor island in a third word country so it will be quite the culture shock!!
All the medical supplies we'll use in the clinic we bring with us with donations from business. If you know of any who would want to be a part of our trip please let me know!
The cost of my trip goes toward the clinic. If you could help me on my way to my $1400 goal, I would be so thankful!
