Hello! My name is Christina, and I'm currently a junior nursing student at Texas State University in Round Rock, Texas. Our nursing school has been presented with a wonderful opportunity to travel to Nicaragua in December of 2013 to provide much needed medical care to villages around Grenada, Nicaragua.  We will be splitting our time between the villages (going door to door to see who needs medical care) as well as their hospitals to help in any way that we can. Along with providing nursing care, we will also be taking medical supplies to hospitals and clinics that are desparately in need of them.

Since I am going to school full time, I am trying to raise as much of my total cost as I can to decrease my out of pocket expenses. The $3000 needed will cover my room and board in Grenada for 12 days as well as my flight from Austin to Managua.

This is not only a great opportunity to serve a community that has little access to decent health care, but it will also help further my nursing education. Please help me reach my goal! Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you all so much in advance!

  • I'm originally from Round Rock, TX but I'm currently going to school at UT Dallas and I found this page on the 87 Krew group. I was humbled to read about your mission trip especially since my family is from Nicaragua and recently I had Tia from Leon, Nicargua who passed away. She was complications breathing but when she was taken to the hospitals in Leon they were unable to seek proper medical attention. So my family had to make the trip from Leon to Managua, but by then it was too late. I think it's a great what you and your nursing school is doing and I wish you the best fam!
