Join Me and change lives in Guatemala

At 16, I had the privilege to go on the very first OHNF medical mission to Ethiopia. After arriving at the hospital on the very first day and seeing almost a thousand people waiting for us to arrive, I immediately started to understand the magnitude of the trip. Access to healthcare is something I truly care about, and these trips continue to renew my faith in its importance.

I started small by helping in any way I could. In Ethiopia, the operating room and the clinic were three floors apart with no elevator. I became a runner who transported messages and supplies up and down the stairs all week. By the time we went to Peru, I was able to help triage patients, assist with endoscopies, and suture superficial wounds. I am a recent college graduate from the University of Miami studying for the MCAT, and my eventual goal is to be able to participate in these trips as one of the surgeons. However, until then, I want to do everything within my capabilities to make an impact.

These missions have become some of the best memories of my entire life. I spend around 10 days a year on the actual trip then proceed to rave about how amazing of an experience it was for the other 355 days of the year. I’ve met great people both on the team and in the places we’ve served who’ve helped me grow as a person and expand my worldview. The trips are extra special for me because I get to share the experience with my father, brother, and grandmother. We get to work together as a team and as a family on something we’re all passionate about.

When a group of genuinely caring people work together to do something good in the world, the results are incredible. I hope you decide to be a part of it.

Join me and change lives in Guatemala

This is the first mission I have had a hand in planning, so it means the world to me to be a part of a mission as unique as this one. I have always found overwhelming enjoyment in giving back to others in any way I can. This mission allows me to do so in a new capacity, and that is very exciting to me. I hope others can see that a small donation can go a long way for missions such as this one.
