US$1,225.00raised of $2,000.00 goal
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!
