Dominican Republic/Haiti June 16 - 24/2018, SR1379

   

Opportunity Overview

This trip is now closed.  Please explore our other trip opportunities at www.ghotrips.org.

We welcome physicians, dentists, pharmacists, optometrists, physican assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, first responders, dental hygienists, dental assistants, physical/occupation therapists, students, and logistics (non-medical helpers) on all of our general medicine and dentistry trips.

We will be working with our in-country partners of the Dominican Republic, Oasis church, who will provide security, transportation, interpreters, and generally see to our needs as a team. Each caregiver will have their own interpreter, as well as those in triage and the pharmacy.

We will be serving the least, the lost and the last.  These are Haitians, who are effectively slaves to the sugar cane corporations in the Dominican Republic.  We will be bringing them love and care and the hope of the Gospel.  We encourage medical students to join us on this trip.  This is a fantastic opportunity to mentor a medical students as well.

Our team will stay at a secure hotel with multiple persons (single sex) to a room with a bathroom in each room. Food is safe and plentiful. Bottled water is provided to all team members at all times. You will feel safe and come to enjoy and appreciate the love and gentleness of the Haitian people who love Americans. We will depart from the hotel after breakfast each day and return to hotel for the evening meal, worship and devotionals. We value the team bonding time.  Saturday will be set aside for a day of sightseeing in the DR before returning home on Sunday.

Please consider joining us to minister to these amazing people and seeing what God is going to do!

Rick Boden, MD is the Team Leader.
