I want to go to Africa as a volunteer to provide health care there to underserved populations. I need funding only for my transportation as you have to pay your own way. I have wanted to do this for about 30 years. I wanted to join the Peace Corps when I was younger but family responsibilities made it impossible. Life got in the way. Still, the vision remains, and I feel like I am running out of time.
Now I am past that part of my life where family responsibilities had to be a priority. Children are grown, parents are gone. I have another chance. I want to live this dream before I am too old to be able to do it. I finally got a passport and I have a job that would permit me time off to go, the only thing stopping me is a plane ticket!
