Myanmar October 23 - November 4/2017, SR1327

Opportunity Overview

This trip is now closed, with the exception of a Dentist, students, or logistics (non-medical helpers).  If you wish to apply and already have a passport, please email Ron Brown at ronb@cmda.org right away.  Otherwise, we invite you to check out our other opportunities at www.ghotrips.org.

Global Health Outreach will be taking its second trip to Myanmar, formerly called Burma, in October 2017.  Myanmar is nestled between India and Bangladesh on the west, China on the north/northeast and Thailand on the east, and has slowly begun to open up to outside influences.  A nominally civilian government was introduced in 2011, while November 2015 elections have given more hope to the people of Myanmar.  Business, tourism and even religious freedom advocates are all hoping to see improvement for the daily lives of the Myanmar peoples.

Our last team served in the capital city and then took a short domestic flight to a small city in the mountains, where we served for several more days.  In each site we experienced an amazing welcome and warmth by the Myanmar population.  This year we will again serve in both of these sites, including in a boys detention center where we expect to broaden our impact to some 400 boys.

Our 2017 team will be limited to 15 team members comprised of 4-5 medical providers (including a dermatologist), 2 dentists, 1-2 hygienists, 1 pharmacist, 1 physical therapist, 2-3 nurses and 2 non-medical team members.

Please prayerfully consider joining this second trip for GHO to Myanmar.

Contact the team leader, Ron Brown, at ronb@cmda.org for more detailed information.
