African Villages can survive without a health hut, school or well, but permanently they cannot live without trees.

Calling All Medical People!

2013 PT Medical team

Planting together is more than just trees! Our 2013 Medical team, combining 10 Africans and non-Africans together attended more than 400 patients in 3 and a half days while also taking care of our team bug-bites, cuts and bruises. People came a 30km radius to sleep at the door of our makeshift compound and get medical attention because constant care does not exist in this part of the world. Days were long, food sometimes had to wait as the long lines of patient villagers stretched the capacity of the gynecologist, nurses, dentist, internal specialist and practitioners. A baby was born after midnight and named after the doctor in charge. Many tears of gratitude and exhaustion were shared and lives of both physicians and patients were changed forever! Wanna join us this year for another African adventure of a lifetime!

We also need to find sources or collaborators to supply medicines and equipment. Whether you are a medical student or chief resident at Mayo clinic, there is an amazing opportunity to put your skills to work. To apply or get more information, contact us now!

    Soy enfermera , desde España, y estoy deseando poder ayudaros . Necesitaría saber fechas para poder ir a hacer el trabajo que necesiten y desde dónde se saldría. Si el equipo médico está cubierto, no me importaría ir de voluntaria a hacer el trabajo que sea.
