Medical Mission: Vietnam

Medical Mission Quick update:  For two weeks in mid-winter, I will be heading off to my sixth medical mission.  These are the highlights of my year, as it is not only is a chance to give back and help those in dire need, but the satisfaction these missions provide is something that truly sustains my spirit and recalibrates my value system.

This year’s mission is to Vietnam, where we will be handling an array of birth defects, most notably cleft palate. Whereas past missions have been through non-profit I founded called Destination Hope, this time around I am joining ReSurge (formerly Interplast) as a volunteer on one of their missions.  In reality, I am relieved to be joining and not leading / planning this time around!

Destination Hope’s past missions have been to the Philippines and Ecuador.  I will provide a lengthier post of this mission, with photos and hopefully a link to a video, after I return.
