Medical & Dental Mission Trips — Summer & Winter 2018

MEDICAL & DENTAL MISSION TRIP – KENYA & PERU

Azma International invites applications to participate in our Medical and Dental Mission Trip in Kenya and Peru this summer and winter 2018.

The team will volunteer in a medical, dental and health promotion mission trip. We will set up clinics in rural areas that see little to no medical attention. Poor living conditions, overcrowding, lack of sufficient running water, and undeveloped sewage systems have led to widespread diseases in the rural areas, urban slums and other poor parts of the country.  People living in these poor communities lack access to proper health care and good nutrition. The team will provide free medical services and health education to the less fortunate who would otherwise go without medical care. Our goal is to travel to the places where people need the most urgent care, and bring free medical and dental services to them.

Students have an opportunity to gain a lot of hands-on experience as you work with the local health care providers we partner with in missions. You will gain insight into global health as you and learn more about the tropical and infectious diseases in this part of the world. Work includes teaching health education in schools and orphanages, to help reduce preventable illnesses.
