I have created this fundraising page because I am trying to raise money to pay for a 2-week Volunteer Trip to Lima-Cusco, Peru sponsored by MEDLIFE for this upcoming Summer 2014. As a MEDLIFE participate, I will be able to volunteer at mobile clinics in Peru, and I will have the opportunity to work closely with and learn from MEDLIFE’s medical professionals and the community leaders in Peru. But most importantly, I will be able to directly help the less fortunate by providing medical care to thousands of Peru’s community members who do not have access to healthcare.
The participation fee for a 2-week volunteer trip starts at $1,500.00 and does not include airfare. Although I am making great efforts to work more hours and finding side jobs just to lessen the financial burden that I am faced with, my efforts are not enough. Therefore, I would really appreciate it if you took the time to make a donation to help me fund this volunteer trip.
Taking this trip will allow me to progress in my efforts to go to medical school because I will be able to gain the knowledge, skills, and experience that are required in healthcare professions. In addition, I will be able to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I really do appreciate it.
