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

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!!

Medical Mission Trip: Dominican Republic May 11 - 18, 2019 ,
11-02-2019

ABOUT THE MISSION TRIP

trip_InfoAboutThe Dominican Republic is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. It is also a country where water supply, deforestation, and soil erosion are posing a great threat to the country. The coral reefs surrounding the island are also in harm's way, decreasing the fish that the people of the coastal regions need to survive. 30% of the population is unemployed and more than 20% of the workforce is underemployed. The poor water quality throughout the island is responsible for many health problems and increasing infectious disease. More than 2 million Haitian immigrants, most of them undocumented, live in the Dominican Republic working in high labor, low wage, unskilled jobs and receiving no services from the government. This is why International Medical Relief has been invited to provide care for the people of the Dominican Republic who can't access care. ·

ABOUT CLINIC

trip_InfoClinicIMR will be traveling to villages surrounding the province to provide patients with much needed health care services, dental care, and education and medications. We will care for families, the elderly, refugee workers, and more. All community members are invited to attend and even those who are there for the training and education on health topics will come with their families for guidance in how to stay healthy and care for their children. This area lacks clean water and we anticipate treating a lot of diseases as a result of this. Various skin infections, respiratory infections, fungal infections and infectious diseases are all common to the area.

TRANSPORTATION & LODGING

trip_InfoLodgingThe team will be staying in modest, dormatory-like housing that is safe and clean. You will fly into Santo Domingo and meet your transportation to our base camp. If you fly on the group ticket, all transportation will be arranged; if you are taking advantage of the amazing opportunity to extend your stay for the golf, beaches, or mountains by flying independently (and we hope you do!), we'll help you arrange your transportation as required or add you to the group transportation for a small fee.

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

trip_InfoHighlightsWhile the highlight of this trip will be with the patients that you care for, the team will also have the opportunity to participate in the local culture in town some evenings. You'll have some time to make new friends in the village where you are based, practice your Spanish, and maybe even learn some village dances or games! Don't forget your baseball glove, cleats, and favorite bat (just kidding about the bat!) - baseball is more than a national past time; it is the passion of the Dominican Republic and the heart of the community. Let's play ball!!

EXTEND YOUR STAY

trip_InfoExtendedStayJoin IMR on an exclusive extension of nearby Dominican Republic! Spend five perfect days in the unexpected tropical paradise of the Dominican Republic, a country known for its warm people, lush mountain scenery and of course beaches galore. Wander charming cobblestone streets and discover the history of Santo Domingo, the oldest city in the Americas. Explore the country’s mysterious caverns and lush subtropical rainforests. Play in the sand on miles of pristine beaches and discover the underwater beauty of lively coral reefs. Steeped in history, with a delightful blend of traditional and modern, it’s a no-brainer why the Dominican Republic has become a hotspot for tourists from all over the world.
