CMU's Office of Alumni and Annual Giving launched its first crowdfunding site dedicated to supporting student projects and initiatives. Global Medical Brigades is excited to be one of the first five student groups featured on the site. This spring break, we're traveling to Nicaragua to provide comprehensive and sustainable medical care to rural communities.
Last year, the group brought nearly $90,000 worth of medication to serve over 1,000 patients. Our medication and supplies are primarily funded by donation. We hold numerous fundraising events, collect medication from local pharmacies, and contact organizations for medical donations. Still, we find ourselves struggling to raise enough funds to provide full and proper care to all of those that come to the clinic. Our goal is to raise $5000 through CMU's crowdfunding by December 17th. These donations will be used to purchase hard to find medications for our 2015 spring trip to Nicaragua.
Through your generosity and support, you can help provide medical care to thousands that need it most and give meaningful, lasting experiences to our student body. To learn more about our project and to make a donation, please visit:
