Hi Friends and Family, many of you know I have a huge passion for global health but have not done nearly as much as I would love to do…. yet. I have been invited on, and accepted, a trip that I truly believe in and am hoping you might be willing to help me with. The trip is to Myanmar (the old Burma) to help with a pediatric mobile health clinic project that is being created as a pilot project by a great organization Friends Without a Border to support an already successful project under a small NGO named Gold Myanmar.

Currently the doctors involved do not have much, if any, pediatric experience and so only offer care to adults. I have the opportunity to go teach these doctors how to perform pediatric physical exams, some basic health education like infection control, and information about well-child growth and development. It is an honor and privilege to be invited by such an enthusiastic, dedicated and honorable organization; but also one that has such limited funds and resources.

I am hoping to raise my own funds to cover my trip and if you have an interest in sponsoring any part of this trip I would be so grateful. There is no pressure and no expectations. Anything helps cover part of the flight, a night in a hotel, a meal, supplies, etc. We will travel to villages each day and return to Yangon each night. There will be some down time for personal exploration but that will hopefully also be spent exploring and searching for ways to be of service and self-exploration.

Thank you all for reading and for any contributions, positive thoughts and prayers.
