Passionate About:

In the simplest and purest forms, I am passionate about instilling a sense of hope, happiness and love in everyone and anyone I meet. I am passionate about performing at my full potential to provide assistance and care to individuals that may need any extent of it, be it residents of harsh communities situated in developing countries or those forced to sleep on the streets of my very own city. I am passionate about constructing, formulating and implementing social movements that work toward providing basic human life necessities such as proper health care accessibility and education. I am passionate about leaving a positive imprint rooted in happiness and joy in every and any community I come across. Through your kind and generous donations I will be able to do this in the beautiful communities of Honduras and for that I am forever grateful. Thank you!

Volunteer Activity Message

Global Brigades offers 7-9 day Medical Brigades throughout the year in Honduras, Panama and Nicaragua. During a Medical Brigade, volunteers have the opportunity to take vitals and patient history in triage, shadow licensed doctors in medical consultations, and assist in a pharmacy under the direction of licensed pharmacists. Each of our partner communities receives a brigade approximately twice a year. Between brigades, our in-country team maintains relationships with the communities to provide follow-up and to conduct Community Health Worker (CHW) trainings to empower local leaders to sustain a consistent level of healthcare. Electronic patient records are collected for future visitations and to monitor overall community health trends.
