NOTE: GHO has a COVID plan to do our best to keep trip participants and our patients safe and healthy. We are watching closely (see updates below *) as countries begin to open up and trusting the Lord to make our way clear. It is possible this mission will cancel in which case your application and funds will be moved to a future mission of your choice.
*Currently CDC has lifted guidelines and no longer recommend a quarantine upon return to the U.S. if you have been vaccinated for COVID-19. We do however recommend you check with your employer or hospital for their requirements before committing to the mission.
*All team members must be COVID-19 vaccinated to attend this mission trip. This includes ages 16 and up, with younger team members not allowed to attend at this time. All Covid-19 restrictions will be lifted as soon as safely possible.

This trip normally hosts primary care providers, dermatologists, gynecologists, psychiatrists or psychologists, radiologists or ultrasound technologists, dentists, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, dental hygienists, physical/occupation therapists, ophthalmologists, and optometrist. The trip specialty is REFUGEE CARE.
This country, as one of the main gateways into Europe for people fleeing numerous war-torn and chronically unstable countries, is on the frontline of this crisis which shows little signs of ending as conflicts rage on in the home countries for many refugees and migrants landing on its shores.
This team will spend 2 days working in the mountains of northern Greece. There is a closed group of people living in this area. We will then spend 2-3 days working at a refugee care center in Thessalonica. This trip will focus on loving these people through our act of service in healthcare. These refugees are in desperate need of hope and healing. The need is tremendous: physically, emotionally, and especially spiritually. We will come alongside our national partner to serve their needs as much as possible while offering them the eternal hope found only in Christ.
Could it be that you have been created for such a mission as this?
