Without your generosity our mission would be impossible. For you understanding, time, donations, and support, we express our greatest appreciation. You empower us to form and build a community of service and appreciation that we are grateful to be apart of.
Although you may not meet the ultimate beneficiaries of your donation, the appreciation of the people of Nicaragua will resonate across our borders. On behalf of the global community of Medical Brigades, we thank you.
Global Brigades offers 7-9 day Medical Brigades throughout the year in various parts of the world such as Honduras, Panama, Ghana and Nicaragua. During a Medical Brigade, volunteers have the opportunity to take vitals and patient history in triage, shadow licensed doctors in medical consultations in various fields, and assist in a pharmacy under the direction of licensed pharmacists. This is a great experience for both the volunteers and the communities we serve! Please consider supporting our next brigade to Nicaragua!
With these generous donations, you will directly impact our current and future communities in need by helping us pay for:
-The time of both local and abroad physicians/dentists
-Medical supplies: from toothbrushes to shampoo, to cough and allergy pills, and local anesthetic for dental patients
-Domestic necessities for families: concrete floors to replace those of dirt/mud, latrines, toilets, etc.
-Our ability to travel and provide educational seminars for community members of all ages, reinforcing a society of learning, communication, and collaboration in all means related to health.
As an entirely student run organization, team fundraising is essential to a brigade’s success. With your help, we are not only able to physically arrive in-country and prescribe medications, we are able to provide intangible antidotes: knowledge, empowerment, and motivation, all of which catalyze a positively-changing community.
