We are headed to Myanmar this November to work within their hospitals. A small group from the Nanaimo Hospital have received a formal invite from the Sitagu Association to work within their clinics. The Sitagu Association is the largest Buddhist humanitarian organization in Myanmar. The association does a wide variety of humanitarian work from water projects and emergency relief to clinics and medical care. Visiting a few of these sites will give us a chance to support the local people with some resources and assess potential training and teaching opportunities.
However the most important goal of this primary visit is to establish key relationships and assess the viability of future work and partnerships. We have been directed to 3 clinical sites where our resources and skills can be best utilized. We feel there is vast opportunity to create long term projects between the 16 different hospitals overseen by the Sitagu Association, our hope is to use Canadian resources and knowledge to sustain local medical initiatives.
As we are completely funding our individual travel expenses to and within the country, all fundraising efforts for this initiative will be used to purchase medications and medical supplies for the hospitals and clinics where we will be working alongside local staff. We plan to purchase medications from local pharmacies within the country so that we support their economy by doing so.
