My Medical Volunteering Trip to Sri Lanka

Helping others has always been important in my life, so I cannot wait to give back to a community in need as I embark on a volunteering trip to Sri Lanka participating in medical camps in Hambantota this fall. Having just become a Registered Practical Nurse, I look forward to putting my skills and knowledge to use while gaining international experience in my field at the same time.

I will be assisting local healthcare professionals with public health education regarding maternal health, practicing proper hygiene, disease prevention, etc. I will also assist with immunizations and head-to-toe assessments at various locations, such as schools, elderly homes, etc.

To be able to participate in this program, I need to pay for my airfare, travel insurance, vaccinations, visa, and program fee that covers my food and accommodation among other things. I estimate all of this to cost about $3500.

Therefore, I’m here to appeal for your financial support to help make my dream come true. I am extremely grateful for any support offered to me!
