Hi friends!

My name is Melissa Byrne and I am a Sacramento State Nursing Student. I signed up for a trip for this summer with an organization called Volunteers Around the World (VAW) through Sacramento State to provide health care in Panama for two weeks. Our goal is to provide communities with access to medical treatment, medications, nutritional security, clean water, and health education. Unfortunately, due to the heavy load of the nursing program, I am unable to work as much as I'd like to help pay for my fees. 

As a team of about 20-30 Sac State Students, we will be fundraising, collecting donations of medical equipment, medications, and organizing lesson plans to give in Spanish to children in Panama up until we leave in July. We will be shadowing doctors and gaining cross-cultural clinical experience.

I have been searching for an opportunity like this to fulfill my newfound passion of making a diffference across the world. 

My fees are approximately $3000. My goal is to reach $1000!

Any help would be incredibly appreciated, and I promise, it will be going to a good cause! 

Thank you for your time. :)
