Erica Bradbury - Terrat medical mission ( Fall 2017)

Tanzania

Dear friends and family,

I have been given the incredible opportunity to participate in a medical mission with CACHA in Terrat, Tanzania from September 26 to October 13, 2017
 
I will be a member of the pharmacy team, working alongside a larger team consisting of surgeons, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, ophthalmologists, other health workers and coordinators, and logisticians (non-medical workers) to bring much needed medical care to those living in the area.
 
CACHA medical missions are non-profit and 100% self-funded. The total cost is approximate $5160. This includes flight, accommodation, food, in-country transportation, allowances for locally engaged partners, medical and logistics equipment and supplies, communications, customs, work permits in Tanzania, medical treatments and referrals for patients.

I am raising funds to help me fulfill my dream of volunteering in Africa, which will not only help me to grow as a person but will let me use my pharmacy skills to help change the lives of those less fortunate than you and I. Please donate to this amazing cause. Every little bit helps!
$1,770 raised so far
