So we have decided that the volunteering trip next summer will be Sri Lanka.
We are working with Projects Abroad again to help coordinate a lot of the logistics for when we arrive since they already have such a strong infrastructure in place. When we were in Ghana they made the trip so much easier so all we needed to do was care for the people we were there for.
The locations in Sri Lanka we are reviewing the needs for right now are:
As soon as we get the details about the type of help and medical supplies these locations need we will start soliciting medical supplies. It will be interesting to see what they request because in this area of the world the focus is on a more traditional medicine called Ayurveda. If you are interested in learning more about Ayurveda clink on the box below.
The great news for me is I already have had the various vaccines that I am required to have for traveling to Sri Lanka. Once July gets closer I will meet with the travel doctor again to be sure but until then all I need to worry about is a flu shot that I am required to have for volunteering at Saddleback Memorial Hospital.
