Pre Med Internship in Ecuador

Hello friends & family (:

My name is Lyndsay Chester and I am elated to tell you about an exciting opportunity I've been given! I have been accepted into a Pre Med Internship with A Broader View Volunteers Corp., a USA based non-profit 501 c(3) organization devoted to providing culturally immersive humanitarian aid programs which have a direct, progressive impact on the hosting community. In May, I will be traveling to Quito, Ecuador to volunteer as a nurse's aid for six weeks, working four to eight hours a day, five days a week. Examples of tasks I will be given are cleaning wounds, charting patients, taking vitals, and assisting in the pediatric & neonatology unit. I will also take Spanish immersion lessons for four weeks, in hopes of becoming fluent & communicating with more people, in and out of healthcare. I am a sophomore at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and I am on the pre physicians assistant track, hoping to also serve abroad following graduation. I am interested to gain insight and experience, onto what health care looks like in different communities. Additionally, I am passionate about social inequality and global health, and I look forward to immersing myself in a hospital not only abroad, but also one that provides free services to low income communities. I look forward to the opportunity to learn from individuals in Quito, and spread more love throughout the area. A Broader View Volunteers Corp. has arranged a host family that I will be staying with, and will provide me with local support, and project placement. The total cost of the trip will be approximately $3,738 including housing, meals, airfare, and required supplies. I hope that you will be able to lend financial assistance to this project. If you are able to cover the cost of just one day of my trip, which is only $89, I would be tremendously grateful. Financial support via this website is tax deductible. If not, thoughts & prayers are also greatly appreciated!!!

Love, Lyndsay
