           Along with a group of Boston College students, I will be working with the organization MEDLIFE in Cusco, Peru to serve the individuals in this poor community. The people living in these communities are vulnerble in every sense of the word--lacking education, medical support, and resources in their community. Upon hearing about MEDLIFE, I was immediately struck by the importance of the work they do in developing communities on a global scale. I knew that even being a small part of the immense work that MEDLIFE does was something I needed to do. MEDLIFE works to achieve their goal through partnering with motivated individuals in poor communities working to improve their access to MEDs: Medicine, Education and community Development. MEDLIFE believes access to quality healthcare is a basic human right.

            I am hoping that something about MEDLIFE's mission speaks to you. If so, I would be incredibly grateful for a donation of any size to fund my trip to Peru this coming January. Each one of us going on the trip must raise all of our own money to pay for the flight, as well as room, board, and meals for our week-long stay. Thank you for your consideration! If you are interested, MEDLIFE has a vast amount of information on their website which is: http://medlifeweb.org/. 100% of every donation made to MEDLIFE itself goes towards the creation of medical clinics, schools and other development projects.
