Help me to help save the world one community at a time—starting with Punta Gorda, Belize in Central America. I have the wonderful opportunity for an overseas experience that is bound to change the lives of others. Boston University, Sargent School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, in conjunction with Pro World, a volunteer organization, offers a program that places volunteers in Punta Gorda, Belize to build out-patient clinics in rural areas of the country where access to healthcare is severely limited. Along with a group of nine other Boston University students with a background in Health Science, we will have the opportunity to assist other health care providers in setting up medical clinics and providing for the basic health care needs of people in an entire community. In addition to these services, we will educate the community on the importance of fortified nutrition, diabetes, immunization programs, women’s empowerment, and similar deficits. This will be my first community service/medical health brigade to an underserved area of the world, and I hope that this is the first of many. I have never been so ready to have direct contact with individuals and communities, and to help them achieve their ultimate health through education, empowerment, and medical aid. I truly believe that this trip will be the next step to further developing the necessary skills and persona of a great physician. This particular trip to Belize costs approximately $2,300. With your kind support and donations, I will be able to enrich my cultural experiences, fulfill my passion to help and guide others, and most importantly make a marked difference in the lives of individuals who are not nearly as fortunate as we are. Thank you so much for your support. Please know how much your generosity means to me and the community of Punta Gorda. I look forward to sharing this extraordinary experience with you upon my return. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you, Catrina
