Honduras 7-14, 2019 ,
14-11-2019
This will be IMR’s 2nd visit to Honduras, a country known for its natural beauty and extreme poverty, with more than 50% of the population destitute. Major risk factors include high unemployment and inadequate public education. Many schools have up to 80 children in a classroom with one teacher. Of all the children entering 1st grade, only 30% are still in school by 6th grade and only 8% continue to the university level. Health care is almost nonexistent in the rural areas of the country where your IMR team will work. The towns where we will care for patients have a high prevalence of diseases transferred by mosquitoes such as malaria, dengue, and recently chikungunya, especially during the months right after rainy season. Due to the lack of clean water and sanitation methods diseases such as skin rashes/ infections, ear, eyes, nose and throat infections, respiratory infections, influenza, heartworm, and diarrhea are seen daily in adults and children. Oral hygiene is nonexistent and dental care is of critical importance. These are health issues you can significantly impact through excellent patient care and health education. Please join us!
 
There is one doctor for this town and the surrounding communities and most of the provided services for care require payment for services. Patients, seen on a walk-in basis, start lining up at 4 am. If they are not among the first in line, they will probably not be seen that day. The small hospital in the area also has small resources, is a car ride away, and is for private pay patients only. Your IMR team is their hope for the health of the children in this town. The radio, posters, and word of mouth will all be used to tell everyone that we are there. However, the town has determined that the real way to spread the news is through the school children. Every school child will receive a letter to take home, outlining the day and location of our team. The churches will announce our visit and ensure that even the homebound know that we will come to them. Home visits are some of the best medicine we provide and some of the most fun for our team! Expect a crowd; there will be no shortage of patients here. Doctors, dentists, nurses, EMS, counselors, and non-medical staff are all needed; OB-GYNs, Dermatologists, Pediatricians, and Pediatric Dentists are in especially high demand. The local doctor is fully supportive of our visit and will collaborate with us to care for those patients with chronic illness such as hypertension and diabetes.
IMR Trinidad and Tobago Nov 1-8,2019 ,
3-10-2019
Come and join the IMR team as we continue our work with our Trinidadian and Tobagonian partners to help improve the quality of life for this incredible nation. Upon arrival, the locals will proudly welcome you with their bright, Caribbean spirit. During your visit, you will enjoy authentic cuisine that is comparable to Creole, but made with local, bold spices. 

While both islands are known for their magnificent beaches and mountain views, Trinidad’s is home to boisterous carnivals and calypso music while the smaller Tobago boasts a Forest Reserve that provides a haven for many species of bird. No matter which island you are one, you can embark on incredible snorkeling trips, see old pirate bays, and explore sunken ships and reefs.
In Trinidad and Tobago, there are not enough healthcare providers or facilities to serve the population.  While the island does have health centers, many are understaffed and undersupplied and although though most of the existing healthcare services are free, patients are frequently unable to obtain care, even on an emergency basis. To help provide quality medical care to all citizens, IMR sends volunteers to remote areas of the country to provide quality health care and medical services. Our mobile clinics offer assistance to children, women, families, the elderly, and other in-need populations.  

You and the rest of the volunteer team will educate locals on how to stay healthy and how to care for their loved ones. Together, we will treat a wide variety of acute and chronic illnesses including dengue fever, hepatitis, malaria, pneumonia, and digestive diseases. However, one of the major focuses of this mission is dentistry. Because all community members are encouraged to attend, demand for dental care will be high. Another focus of this mission is women’s healthcare. We will provide general women’s and infant care, as well as strengthen the knowledge and skills of the local midwives. We expect a high patient load in the highly populated slum communities we will be serving in. With 1.2 million people and a population density of 266 per sq. km, and only 1 doctor per 1,000 people, our services are needed!
 
Our patients are the highlight of every IMR mission!  Quality of life has been compromised for many island residents, but Hypertension, Diabetes, TB, and HIV are treatable, and you will be directly responsible for positively changing the lives of these patients! 

While the most rewarding aspect of this trip will be caring for the people of Trinidad and Tobago, your team will also have the opportunity to visit some of the country’s top destinations. Since this is one of the most beautiful places in the world, you will experience mouth-watering cuisine, stunning white-sand beaches, and local marine life.  
Guatemala Oct 5-12, 2019 ,
5-09-2019
Imagine waking up surrounded by 3 volcanoes with the smell of pan (bread) baking in old ovens and the song of the local birds as they welcome the sunrise.  If that's what you are imagining, you must be in La Antigua, a small city in south central Guatemala known for its colonial and Spanish baroque architecture, active and dormant volcanoes, multicolored buildings, secret doorways and warm people. It has also been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is where you will be based during the week as you travel out to areas where medical care is scarce and dental care is almost non-existent.  Please join us as we care for the people of Antigua, many of whom suffered greatly during the 2018 volcanic eruptions that left many families without their loved ones and  villages covered in ash.
 
Clinics will take place in the beautiful valleys around La Antigua and in schools and orphanages near the city.  Many of your patients will come from the indigenous tribes in the areas; others will have been greatly affected by the most volcano and those in the not so distant past.  This area has seen great hardship and great loss and your team will make a tremendous difference in your patient's life.  You will have the opportunity to provide medical care, dental care, and health and hygiene education to hundreds of patients during the week - are you up for the challenge?  Your reward will be the hugs and laughter of the children and the shy smiles of their parents as they thank you for caring enough to help their families.
 
The team will be staying in a simple, safe, clean and friendly hotel located in this beautiful city where you can enjoy the local food, music, and an array of shops.   Tour the Chocolate Museum, where you will learn how to make chocolate from the bean! Everything is within walking distance and the city is full of color, wonderful smells, and amazing food. . The culture of Guatemala will come alive as you explore the city after clinic and during your day off. 

Upon your arrival in Antigua, all  transportation to clinic has been arranged for you.  Professional drivers, safe vehicles, and security are some of the many reasons to join IMR on a trip.  Don't nap - there's a lot to see in the valleys and hills surrounding your home away from home this week!  
Kenya October 4-12, 2019 ,
28-08-2019
Participate in a truly ‘Out Of Africa’ experience.  You will bring needed aid to those living in disadvantaged situations without access to medical and dental care. The shining faces of children will fill you with delight upon your arrival as you bring much needed aid to those without access to medical services. Venture into their hearts and experience the rich Kenyan culture while caring for them and bringing them hope and inspiration. This premier opportunity will allow volunteers to see every facet of life that Kenya has to offer from the orphanages and informal settlements to the villages and game parks. During this trip you will enjoy a one-day safari and see the world famous Big 5 of Kenya!
 
International Medical Relief continues to make a difference in Kenya as we return to aid survivors in this land of continued healthcare peril. There is a desperate need for more comprehensive health care that includes education. Diseases spread quickly here and quickly become unmanageable. Our clinic camps will be set up exclusively for the IMR team and the entire community will come out to be a part of the clinic. You can expect to see infections of every type, snake bites and wounds, some chronic, others quite acute, and the hypertension and diabetes that plagues the world today.  Diagnosis, treatment, and education are equally important in this environment.
 
Your accommodations will be safe and comfortable, with individual beds for each team member.  The excellent food, service, and amenities will all help you to recharge and get ready for the day ahead.  Transportation will be equally comfortable, with professional drivers, safe vehicles, and plenty to see out the window!  Don't forget to look for the zebra herds!!
 
The families will stay with you long after this trip ends.  Multi-generational but often missing one entire generation in the middle with HIV/AIDS a common cause of the devastation the missing generation means to the family before you.  Grandmothers will bring their grandchildren for your recommendations and expertise; young girls will bring their babies for you to do the same.  You'll see many unforgettable  things on this trip. 

SAFARI INCLUDED! After an arduous clinic schedule the team will see up close some of the world’s most amazing animals. On your safari, you will witness the harmony of numerous species of wildlife rarely found in any large quantity anywhere but Kenya. See the abundant wildlife first hand that has made Kenya the leader for adventure wildlife seekers and renowned photographers. In this place like no other, you will have the opportunity to see up close the world’s most amazing animals.
 
PERU RAINFOREST ,
28-07-2019
This beautiful trip starts and ends in Pucallpa, Peru.  Located on the Ucayali River in eastern Peru, Pucallpa is a place that few tourists go but they are missing out! Sloths and monkeys abound in this port city that is the gateway to the jungle. You will find a port city combining the modern with the old with a touch of mythical creatures thrown in for good measure!  Laguna Yarinacocha, about 15 minutes from town, shelters wildlife, including many varieties of monkeys, sloths, river dolphins, and birds of every size and color. Pucallpa, in addition to being a jumping off point for Amazon expeditions, is home to the Shipibo-Conibo indigenous people, and suffers from serious flooding annually. 

The Shipibo-Conibo people are an indigenous tribe living along the Ucayali River in the Amazon rainforest in Perú. The Shipibo (apemen) and the Conibo (fishmen) were originally distinct tribes until they became one people based on shared traditions and beliefs and intermarriage. They are becoming more urbanized in order to survive but are fighting to keep their traditions, including utilizing traditional spiritual brews in rituals and shamans for their medical care. Your team will provide care for many of the Shipibo-Conibo people as you work in the small villages along the river. You will have an opportunity to learn about the rich culture of this beautiful and unique area, where the people are passionate about their religion, their crafts, and their traditions.
 
The World Bank and the World Health Organization stated in a 2009 study that these indigenous peoples are viewed as needing full assistance to solve their multiple health problems . IMR is working in collaboration with local partners to help those suffering from life threatening diseases. We will provide medical and dental care and health education to these otherwise untouched people groups. Your team will see many patients with infections, wounds, and common health problems that are frequently untreated. Dental needs are among the most troubling, with patients suffering from horrific pain from infected teeth without care other than home remedies. 

Annual flooding is a serious concern for the people of the Amazon River basin, with the associated skin issues, infections, and emotional loss that comes with major disasters. Dengue Fever and other mosquito-borne diseases are significant health concerns in this community. Providing education about mosquito-borne disease and providing supportive care for patients will be a primary task for our team. This trip is a wonderful opportunity to provide care for people who truly need the help. 

We will be bringing some of the less accessible indigenous people into our clinic and will work closely with local medical students to care for them. If you love to teach, this is the trip for you!
IMR Brazil June 22-29,2019 ,
11-06-2019
IMR will return for our 8th visit down the beautiful, world-renowned, Amazon River. Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world and takes up nearly half of South America by itself. Brazil is a country of great natural beauty that includes mountains, wetlands, island archipelagos, waterfalls, colonial ports, and some of the world’s most populated cities. Your team will live and work on the Amazon River in the heart of the rainforest and every moment on the river is truly a feast for the eyes, from the magnificent sunrises to the striking sunsets. You may even see an elusive jaguar or impossibly large anaconda as you survey your surroundings from the bow of the riverboat you will call home.
 
You and your team will live on a five star, world-class boat and set up a full medical and dental clinic in remote villages along the water’s edge. Without IMR, these villages have no other means of healthcare. Upon returning to your private riverboat each night, you will be welcomed with a feast of local cuisine and opportunities for stargazing, crocodile hunting, hammock swinging, and much, much more. After a dinner of local delicacies and remarkable desserts, the boat will make ready for your departure to the next clinic site while you take a hot shower under the stars and prepare for a wonderful night’s sleep without bugs or cares. Enthusiastic crowds will gather at every stop, and children will peer through every crack as they anxiously wait their turn for care and hugs from the IMR team. Enthusiastic crowds will gather at every stop, and children will peer through every crack as they anxiously wait their turn for care and hugs from the IMR team.
 
Simply being in the Amazon, living on a riverboat, and caring for people with very limited access to care may be enough, but there is still more to see! Your team will spend a day discovering Manaus, including the renowned opera house, Teatro Amazonas (the #1 rated place to visit in Manaus according to TripAdvisor!), the handicrafts market, and the Rio Negro Palace. You will also have the opportunity to explore the rainforest and "hunt" for caimans, explore the villages where you will work, and experience life aboard, steaming up and down the Amazon. Every IMR team member who has "taken the boat" will tell you - this trip is best!!
 
Sengal June 7-15, 2019 ,
13-05-2019
This special trip is dear to IMR's heart, as our very first trip was to Senegal in 2002, and we have worked here for more than a 15 years. Join us as we return with great joy to treat the Talibé children, work in villages and holy cities, and travel throughout central Senegal 

Senegal is a country of contrasts because in a single view you will see women laughing and dressed in lovely printed traditional dress and boubous riding in pony carts, businessmen and women stepping out of their Lexuses and entering high rise offices, overloaded trucks that are impossibly wide for the street, and the tin shacks that house the poor. Turn your head, and you will see goats tied on top of cars for a quick ride to their new homes, children laughing, running, and twirling wooden hoops, and dogs and ponies everywhere. Much of Senegal remains deeply patriarchal and traditional, but women now form a significant minority in the government, and education is on the rise. 

Most of Senegal remains rural, with very limited education, almost no health care outside of the cities, and extreme poverty. One child in eleven dies before the age of five. More than 20% of children are malnourished, and malaria is a common cause of death. Burns are a daily fact of life in the village, where families cook food over open fires. This is where you will make a difference in this remarkable country.
 
On this special trip, IMR will focus our efforts on the Talibé children. In rural Senegal, the accepted way for children to have the honor of attending school is through the Talibé system. In the past, this system developed educated professionals in Senegal; today, the children, living in "daaras" or schools, are found more often on the street, begging, than in the classrooms. The Talibé children live in dire conditions, sleeping on concrete floors with dozens of other boys. Many find refuge in their "daara" or school, with up to 100 boys being cared for by a single teacher. In order to attend school, the boys beg up to ten hours per day and are required to pay their teacher a daily fee. After begging all day, the children learn the Koran by rote; if they make a mistake in recitation, they are often severely beaten. By the time they are fifteen or sixteen years old, they are often abandoned to the streets. Join IMR as we return to treat the Talibé children with acute medical and dental care, health education, vaccinations, wound care, and love. 

We will also treat many villagers on this trip. The patients you will see will have conditions ranging from rashes to joint pain, lymphatic filariasis to leptospirosis, schistosomiasis to GERD. Burns are common from the open cooking fires and serious wounds are normal occurrences in clinic each day. Working in the villages is very special and our patients will celebrate your visit. Are you a Dentist? We need you HERE! This is a place of suffering, where chewing sticks have done their damage and created teeth that are barely an exterior shell, with roots that scream with every bite a patient takes. 

We see some of our sickest patients in Senegal. On our 2014 trip to Senegal, we treated more than 200 patients acutely ill with malaria in addition to those suffering from tinea, scabies, ear infections, urinary tract infections, respiratory infections, and sexually transmitted diseases. Your patients will be in the greatest need for medical and dental care. In 2018 we cared for more than 700 Talibe children and more than 1500 total patients. Health education will continue to make a difference to the health of the villages and the Talibé children. 

Please join us for a very special opportunity to care for the most neglected of patients on this rewarding trip. You will have the opportunity to partner with many local physicians and an outstanding team of translators that have worked side-by-side with IMR for many years. 
Nicaragua June 1-8, 2019 ,
10-05-2019
After landing in vibrant Costa Rica, you will be transported by boat to Nicaragua's tropical rainforest region. You will be staying in one of the most ecologically diverse environments of the world. The medical team will travel to the Rama Indian tribes and other nearby communities to set up clinics. Each morning the team will venture out on guided boats, traveling on rivers famous for world-class fishing, to reach these nearby large communities as well as the more isolated locations throughout the rainforest. Following the clinic, IMR’s team will return to their accommodation: a state of the art, exclusive lodge, where private cottages are connected via bridged paths that wind through the Amazon rainforest. Housing a minimum of 44% of the plant species and 35% of vertebrate species on Earth, Nicaragua’s rain forest is considered a biodiversity hotspot of Mesoamerica. Embrace the opportunity to be immersed in this tropical ecosystem, as this area is in danger of being lost, like so many of our natural rainforests.
 
The growth in the Bluefields area has expanded beyond the ability of the medical structure to care for their patients. IMR works in town to help offset the overload of patients from the continual growth in this area. Also, indigenous groups that rarely receive medical care or any outside visitors are also a very special highlight for any volunteer. It is an honor to receive the patient's trust and be allowed into this region to provide medical care. The Rama, considered to be the “Guardians of the Forest,” do not generally have the means to travel the extensive distances to seek the limited health care typically offered. Your patients will paddle for many hours against the current to come to clinic or to return to their homes after being seen. If you watch closely, you may see a small wooden canoe, hand carved from the single log of a tree, tied up to a larger barge for a tow against the current. IMR’s focus on health education and acute medical and dental care will serve your patients well: you will see many patients for wound care, respiratory infections, and fungal infections. Rotavirus, giardiasis, ascariasis, and other infectious diseases are common, much of which can be prevented through your team’s focus on preventing disease with education.
 
 
 
Cambodia May 31- June 9, 2019 ,
12-04-2019
Cambodia, home to nearly 15 million is perhaps one of the most charming countries in all of Asia. From an outsider’s first glance, its pristine golden beaches, tranquil rice paddies, lush jungle landscapes, and vibrant sunsets over the world’s largest religious structure are the allure of this country. Take a deeper look and learn that it is the Khmer people that ultimately comprise its unique draw. Cambodia’s tragic history defined by decades of political unrest, violence, and poverty has shaped an inspiringly optimistic and warm population. As a visitor, it is a powerful experience to feel the serenity emitted by Cambodia’s paradisiacal landscapes in harsh contrast to the magnitude of strife previously endured. This poignant intersection of a painful past and developing present leaves no visitor untouched.

ABOUT CLINIC

trip_InfoClinicInternational Medical Relief is partnering with Cambodia on a major goal of the country: to improve access to healthcare and preventative education to health conditions. This is no easy task - during the bloody regime of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge, the health care system as a whole was decimated, with virtually no doctors left in the country at the end of the regime. Even today, more than 40 years after the end of the Khmer Rouge, the United Nations Millennium Project proclaimed that only 13 percent of the country visited health facilities last year, and 22.9 percent of children die before the age of 5. Treatable diseases like malaria, intestinal parasites, cholera, diarrhea, tuberculosis, and yaws, as well as vaccine-preventable diseases such as measles are endemic and claim lives everyday. The situation is improving as a whole but among the populations that IMR serves, the poor, migrant workers, unregistered population, and ethnic minorities, healthcare is almost nonexistent.

TRANSPORTATION & LODGING

trip_InfoLodgingWe will be staying in comfortable and modern hotels during your stay in Phnom Penh. You will love the bustle of the city and the wide variety of cuisine's. All transportation will be included in your trip, and provided by safe and trustworthy drivers.

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

trip_InfoHighlightsOn your free day in Phnom Penh, you and the team will have opportunities to visit the Royal Palace, take a river tour, and see the Killing Fields of the Khmer Rouge. Be prepared to immerse yourself in this incredible culture and learn about the recent history of Cambodia that many of your patients will not have read about it, but instead, lived it. Your ability to care for these patients will be deeply meaningful.  

EXTEND YOUR STAY

trip_InfoExtendedStay

You're venturing around the globe, have you considered extending your stay a few additional days to visit some of Cambodia's top spots? Join IMR on an exclusive extension of Cambodia!

Medical Mission Trip: Nepal May 24-June 2, 2019 ,
13-03-2019

ABOUT THE MISSION TRIP

trip_InfoAboutKathmandu is located in a valley surrounded by the Himalayas and has a population of almost 1 million people. Nepal is a developing country with a low life expectancy and a very low per capita income. It continues to struggle with high levels of hunger and poverty. Natural disasters are a significant contributor to mortality. Nepal is a beautiful and exotic country with great need to meet its most recent challenge, the April 2015 earthquake. The nation is highly religious, with more than 80% of the population practicing Hinduism and many people having deep belief in both Hinduism and Buddhism. In addition to being home to eight of the top ten mountains in the world, Nepal also has some of the most beautiful religious sites in the world. Services are extremely limited for anyone outside of the capital of Kathmandu, especially in the areas where your team will be working.

ABOUT CLINIC

trip_InfoClinicThe team will be working in small communities far outside of Kathmandu that were hit hard during the April 2015 earthquake. Your patients will include the residents of small, remote villages who are in desperate need of medical and dental care and health education. You will be able to provide your patients with the immediate care they need and the education to help them help themselves long after you leave. IMR’s medical and dental teams will provide immediate care medicines, laboratory testing, wound care, and more these villages and you will get to know their community as you will be staying in a beautiful guesthouse for the week near the villages you are working in. You will be able to work side-by-side with the IMR's many local medical partners on this trip, providing education on breast cancer prevention, continuing to provide reading glasses and eye examinations, and giving care and comfort to hundreds of patients in need.

TRANSPORTATION & LODGING

trip_InfoLodgingYou will stay in simple accommodations with beds provided for everyone. The accommodations, while not luxurious, are safe, clean, and the best of what this community has to offer. The guest house is the staple of trekkers in Nepal and their owners are hospitable hosts who will make you feel welcomed and cared for. Local foods will be served, including the community staple, dal bhat, consisting of rice and lentils with a variety of spices. Tibetan delicacies are everywhere as well; don't miss the water buffalo momos and the many varieties of rice pudding!

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

trip_InfoHighlightsYour work in two of the most beautiful districts in Nepal will be the highlight of your trip but seeing the beautiful ancient Stupas, Durbar Square and doing a little shopping in Thamel is a close second.  This trip is one our most beautiful - take the time to extend your stay, if you can, and visit Tibet or take a trek!  You will not have the words to describe this trip upon returning home so take a lot of photos!!

"I am a Registered Nurse and the mother of a special needs daughter. I have used Hirenurses.com to hire a competent CNA/Nurse to care for my 9 year old special needs daughter. The website is fantastic and has put us in touch with several people to help fill some of our PCA hours. It is such a relief knowing there is a place to go to look for competent and compassionate medical professionals to care for complex and vulnerable loved ones."
