In February, I will be traveling to Gracias, Honduras as a student nurse in a primary health care brigade with a Peterborough non-profit organization, Friends of Honduran Children. In doing so, I will be fulfilling the required clinical hours in community and public health for my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree at Trent University.

The team consists of: 4 physicians, 4 nurses, 2 dentists, a dental assistant, a medical student, a pharmacist, 2 non-medical volunteers, and 4 nursing students.

We will be providing free medical and dental care to Honduras' most vulnerable communities. We will see up to 1,500 medical patients and 500 dental patients during our visit. A lack of government support for health care, and a serious shortage of adequate facilities, potable water and sanitation services have led to a severe health crisis throughout Honduras. Teaching prevention and healthier lifestyles is a key part of making a sustainable difference.

My goal is to raise $500 and the team's goal is $10,000. The more money we can raise, the more widespread our assistance can be. Anything you can give would be greatly appreciated!

If you would prefer, I will also be accepting donations of light shoes (flip flops, crocs, etc.), clothing, hats, sunglasses, vitamins, and any other basic necessities! If you would like to donate these, please contact me and I can arrange to pick them up!

Thank you!
