Thank you for your interest in participating in a MEDLIFE Mobile Clinic trip! MEDLIFE is a non-profit organization working with students to help communities in developing countries achieve greater freedom from the constraints of poverty and empowering them to live healthier lives. Our long term goal is to make a sustainable impact in these communities.
Participants will work with local health professionals and hopefully gain a better understanding of the inequalities in global health services, and activate a passion for development.
This application is for the trip to Esmeraldas, Ecuador, from Feb 27 to Mar 6. The participation fee will be $805, with a $200 non-refundable deposit. This fee covers accommodation, transportation in country, 5 days of meals, and the medicines our clinic will provide. Airfare is additional. Upon confirmation as a participant, you will gain access to a personalized webpage on MEDLIFE’s website from where you can choose to fund-raise; half of what you raise will go towards your trip, and the other half to the MEDLIFE fund. MEDLIFE McGill will also provide accepted participants with other fundraising opportunities.
The application deadline is: Jan 24, 2015
Spanish knowledge is a strong asset, but not required.
