Hello!

My name is Cindy Nguyen and I am currently a nursing student at Sacramento State University!

Recently, I've discovered a Non-Governmental Organization at my school called Volunteers Around the World (VAW) that is devoted to improving the standard of living for those that live in some of the most poverty stricken communities of the world. VAW provides communities with access to medical treatment, medication, nutritional security, clean water, and health education. 

This summer, VAW will be traveling to Panama for two weeks to set up health clinics in rural communities. Volunteers will have the opportunity to take vital signs, shadow doctors, manage an in-clinic pharmacy, and educate the local children on health. 

For quite some time now, I’ve dreamed of becoming a travel nurse and flying to different countries to provide healthcare to those less fortunate. This trip is the perfect opportunity to decide whether or not this career path is for me and to gain further experience with different cultures.

Unfortunately, travelling to a foreign country requires money; money that I don't currently possess (Nursing school has put a hole in my wallet). This is why I ask YOU to help me, help Panama! 

The trip itself comes to about $2,200 and I would like to raise at least $1000.

Please help me make my dream a reality and I promise to make a video to show my experience!
