My name is Dalal Hares. I recently transferred to Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine. First I would like to thank you for taking time to visit my webpage. I completed my first year of veterinary school at Ross University on the island of St. Kitts in the West Indies. While the island was beautiful the majority of the population lived in extreme poverty and could not afford any veterinary medical care. I worked with an organization that did regular community outreach programs to help residents of the island with free veterinary medical care. I have added some photos of the work I completed while at Ross University.
I found the work on St. Kitts very rewarding. I was able to give physical exams, vaccinations, flea and tick control, and provide sick animals with proper care for common diseases of that region.
The best part of this process was educating people about proper veterinary. Many of the pet owners did not know that ticks were harmful ectoparasites that carry blood borne diseases. Dogs were being fed only rice that led to malnutrition simply because they had never been educated on proper nutrition.
This winter break I would like to participate in a World Vet organized trip to Nicaragua. This trip will provide a free spay and neuter program for cats and dogs. There will also be community outreach days were we will travel to poor regions to provide health care to large animals such as cattle, sheep, goats, and horses. Many of these people depend on these animals to provide for their family for food and a form of income.
As a student I cannot afford to pay for the trip on my own. So I write to you today for help in funding a trip that will not only benefit animals but an entire community.
This the a break down of the expenses for the trip:
World Vet Trip Package: $1550
This will include all transportation, equipment, housing, meals, government travel fees, and a translator for the volunteers
Air Fare: $650

Thank you!!!
