About The Mission Trip

trip_InfoAboutIMR will return for our fourth 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. Every moment on the river is a feast for the eyes, from the magnificent sunrises to the magnificent sunsets. You may even see an elusive jaguar or impossibly large anaconda as you survey your surroundings from the bow of the 5-star riverboat you will call home.

About Clinic

trip_InfoClinicThe Amazon Region of Brazil has about 23 million people with extremely low density. Don't be fooled by this, however. The river communities already know the dates of the IMR trips in 2016 and are eagerly waiting for you to arrive. The team will see patients with malaria and dengue fever, tinea and scabies, chagas disease, and many different wounds. Malaria, Dengue Fever, Leishmaniasis, Tuberculosis, and Leprosy are major public health concerns in the region but there is also an epidemiological shift occurring with the rise of chronic, non-communicable diseases, personal violence, and alcoholism. IMR brings significant value to these patients by providing education on hypertension, diabetes, smoking, and sexually transmitted diseases in addition to basic hygiene, water storage, sanitation, and mosquito/insect control.  On past trips, IMR has seen a wide variety of skin conditions and wounds, including snake and piranha bites, cutaneous leishmaniasis, and many types of fungal infections. Ear infections are common in all ages. Dental care is of primary importance along the river and your team will provide oral health education, fluoride, and acute dental care to every patient in your care. You will be provided with extensive public health information to help you provide the best care possible for your patients, including statistics from past IMR teams. The remote river communities will welcome your team with open arms, a plea for care, and a friendly “obrigado” (Portuguese for “thank you”) upon your departure.

Lodging

trip_InfoLodgingYou 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.

Trip Highlights

trip_InfoHighlightsSimply 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!!

Extend Your Stay

trip_InfoExtendedStayYou certainly don't have to leave Brazil to have the vacation of a lifetime.   From waterfalls to beaches, mountains to deserts, from the 15th century to the 21st century, there is something for everyone in Brazil.  Add into the mix 200,000 million of the nicest people you will ever meet, and some of whom you did meet during clinic,and you have the perfect place to extend your stay.  Visit Pelourinho, a 16th century city, climb Sugarloaf Mountain to see Rio de Janeiro from a whole new perspective, learn a little Capoerira, a Brazilian martial art using art and music and requiring tremendous upper body strength (you are IMR, you can do it!!), or the Tujuca Forest in the middle of Rio, or the Museu de Arte in Sao Paulo.  Not matter which direction you go in, there is something amazing to do in Brazil!  The IMR office can help you extend your stay, so give them a call!

About The Mission Trip

trip_InfoAboutVietnam is a Southeast Asian country on the South China Sea known for its beaches, rivers, Buddhist pagodas, and bustling cities. Fishing is one of the major contributors to large workforce employment. Major employers include a highly diversified group of industrial manufacturers (i.e. machinery, chemicals, textiles, bricks, fertilizer). Most of these businesses are state-owned. You will see an extensive amount of new construction as you travel from your home base out to the small villages each day. Recently, tourism has played a major role in the economy of the area.

About Clinic

trip_InfoClinicYour team will focus on acute medical and dental needs and health education. As with every IMR team, your team will provide classes on hand washing, oral hygiene, purification and storage of drinking water, family planning, safe sexual practices, choking, and stretching/pain management. Individual patients also receive extensive education focusing on prevention from their provider, based on their current and chronic medical conditions.

Lodging

The team will stay in modest, comfortable accommodations. The South Central Coast is known for cooking the strongest and boldest flavor foods available in Vietnam, including mì quảng (rice noodles with turmeric and fish or meat), bún chả cá (fish ball noodle soup), bún mắm (seafood gumbo), cánh gà chiên mắm (fried chicken wings in fish sauce), and mít trộn (a salad mixed with jackfruit and pork rind).

Trip Highlights

You will have the opportunity to see some of the most famous historical sites in the area and enjoy the excitement of the local markets. We will determine the itinerary for your cultural day soon-- there is so much to see and do! One of the most famous sites is Mỹ Sơn, an archaeological site dating back more than a thousand years, in Quảng Nam. Located in a remote forested valley, this former capital and religious center of the Champa kingdom once contained in excess of 70 style temples and stupas. Although badly damaged by bombing raids in the 1960s, the site still has more than 20 structures and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999. Many statues, sculptures and reliefs recovered from Mỹ Sơn are kept in the Museum of Cham Sculpture, near the Hàn River. Dating from the fourth to the 14th centuries, the sensual artwork on these works depicts daily activities as well as Hindu and Buddhist religious themes. The local market offers a wide variety of goods sold by many different vendors, including clothing, silk, jewelry, flowers, and foodstuffs such as dried fruit and fish, plus coffee, tea, and wine.

Extend Your Stay

trip_InfoExtendedStayThinking about extending your stay? IMR can help you plan the trip of a lifetime. Contact the office to discuss your extended stay! If you’re interested in touring the rest of Vietnam, take a trek-- think plunging highland valleys, tiers of rice paddies, and soaring limestone mountains. Go to the Sunday market at Bac Ha and revel in the local flavors. Visit Sapa in the Muong Hoa Valley and stay overnight at the Topas Ecolodge. Love mountain biking? Cat Tien National Park in South Vietnam is your place! There is truly a surprise in every corner of Vietnam and a UNESCO World Heritage Sites almost everywhere you look. Want to travel further afield? Laos, China, and Cambodia are neighbors. Go say hello!

About The Mission Trip

trip_InfoAboutCambodia, 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.

Lodging

We will be staying in clean and friendly hotels throughout our stay. You will love the bustle of the city and the wonderful food. Please join us!

Trip Highlights

trip_InfoHighlightsYou will visit many deeply sobering sites on this trip - and learning about the recent history of Cambodia will remind you 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_InfoExtendedStayThere are so many important sites in Cambodia! Extend your stay and travel by bus to Siem Reap and spend as many days as you can marveling at the temples of Angkor, including Angkor Wat, Ta Prohm, and Bayon. Then return to Phnom Penh by ferry on the Tonle Sap Lake, watching the fishing families work near the floating villages that they call home. While you are in Phnom Penh, savor its busy markets and restaurants and pay respects to those lost to genocide at the Choeung Ek museum and Tuol Sleng prison. Visit the Royal Palace, the Silver Pagoda, and the Central Market. If you love backpacking, head to the Cardamoms. If you love beaches, head down to Kampong Som (Sihanoukville). IMR is happy to help you extend your stay!

About The Mission Trip

trip_InfoAboutExperience the real “Land of Smiles” in a serene town of Northern Thailand where you will stay in a small forest compound surrounded by mango trees. Nestled among rice fields and the quiet hum of daily life, this town neighbors the bustling Chiang Mai night market. Stroll through lines of vendors for a total sensory experience; immerse yourself in the appetite-inducing smells, regional fruits, stunning silk tapestries, and even sizzling fried insects. With our advantageous location, remove yourself from the bustle in just a short walk up the mountain to take in spectacular views of the valley below. Your team will participate in an ongoing effort to decrease certain health concerns in the villages we work in.

About Clinic

trip_InfoClinicThe team will treat remote indigenous groups of the Akha, high in the Chiang Rai mountains. Other patient populations include local migrant workers, as well as refugee populations, often from bordering Myanmar, who are left outside of the medical system. IMR believes that every child should have inalienable rights and protections to prevent them from situational slavery; some patients will be rescued victims of these unfortunately prevalent circumstances.

Lodging

Your team will stay in comfortable, modest accommodations during your stay in Thailand.

Trip Highlights

trip_InfoHighlightsDuring your stay and to coincide with IMR’s year of festivals, your team will attend Thailand’s stunning Loi Krathong and Yi Peng festival! During this time of year, a celebration based on the Thai lunar calendar, people decorate their homes and craft baskets made from flowers, leaves, and lights which they then float on the river. You’ll have the opportunity to send floating lanterns up into the sky as well, joining thousands of others that light up the sky for miles around!

Extend Your Stay

Extend your stay to take advantage of several excursions which IMR can help arrange! Spend some additional days in bustling Bangkok to visit its stunning palace and the reclining Buddha of Wat Pho. If you want to travel only slightly further afield, Cambodia is a short flight or reasonable bus ride away, and you won’t want to miss the splendid, historic temples of Angkor there!

About The Mission Trip

trip_InfoAboutIMR has provided care to the most impoverished villages on several island communities in Indonesia over the last decade. We have also responded to a handful of disasters in Indonesia. Indonesia is an archipelago comprising approximately 17,500 islands. It has thirty-three provinces with over 238 million people and is the world’s fourth most populous country. Spanning its many islands, Indonesia is a beautiful conglomeration of hundreds of distinct native ethnic and linguistic groups. The largest—and politically dominant—ethnic group is the Javanese. Indonesia’s considerable ethnic diversity forms a striking combination with its impressive array of native species such as tigers, rhinoceros, orangutans, elephants, and leopards.

About Clinic

trip_InfoClinicEach day, your team will travel by boat to remote islands chosen specifically because of the need for health care and health education. You will treat and educate many patients with acute respiratory infections, gastritis, skin infections, fungal diseases, typhoid, diarrhea, and wounds. You will also see many patients with chronic conditions including hypertension, diabetes, stroke, and TB. Measles, prematurity, and accidents are still leading causes of death in children under five. IMR will be returning to many of the villages we have worked in previously on this trip. We will also develop relationships in new villages, providing acute medical and dental care and health education. One exciting program that IMR will continue in 2017 is the Certified Health Educator Program. IMR provides extensive training and certification for local health care workers, teachers, and para-medical personnel on a wide variety of health education topics. These certified health educators are then given the materials needed to continue to teach these topics at schools, community gatherings, and community centers. You will also work with some Indonesian medical providers; sharing knowledge builds sustainability, something we truly value at IMR. There is also a special opportunity to interact and get to know the people you are treating on this trip.

Lodging

trip_InfoLodgingWe are very fortunate in Indonesia to be able to stay in one of IMR’s “homes-away-from-home”–a special place where you and team become family for this short visit. You will stay in simple accommodations with beds provided for everyone. The accommodations, while not luxurious, are safe and clean. IMR hires cooks in Indonesia to help ensure high quality and safe cooking practices. Bakso, a savory meatball soup, is a wonderful part of many meals. Nasi goreng is considered to be the national dish of Indonesia; this take on fried rice is often made with sweet, thick soy sauce called kecap (pronounced ketchup) and garnished with acar, pickled cucumber and carrots. This is truly a unique island adventure!

Trip Highlights

trip_InfoHighlightsIn one word, the highlight of this trip is "sustainability." Training local health educators and seeing the results of your efforts is a true and meaningful joy. This trip also provides you with some unique experiences including travel to small islands in an archipelago with your IMR team; working with people left out of the health care system in some of the most impoverished places on earth; and making a huge impact on the lives of many. The sunrises and sunsets are an added bonus, yours for the watching. Be warned! You will leave a piece of your heart behind when you leave this remarkable place.

Extend Your Stay

trip_InfoExtendedStayIMR can help you extend your stay and take advantage of several excursions, if desired. Spectacular scenery and stunning tropical sunsets await you on some of Asia’s most popular beach destinations such as Bali, Indonesia and Phuket, Thailand. These rare gems offer numerous beautiful hotels and resorts to choose from. Take in the world-class diving, tropical tours, cruises, and exotic beaches. Ride around the city in a dokar, ojek, or becak. Go orangutan trekking, tour the Ubud Sacred Monkey sanctuary, or the Borobudur Temple. Take a well-deserved rest to see the amazing archipelago of Indonesia!

About Clinic

trip_InfoClinicInternational Medical Relief is partnering with Song Saa Private Island and the Cambodian government to provide health care to islanders living within the Archipelago of the Thailand Gulf. Too small and remote for fully staffed clinics, IMR will be returning once again to provide acute medical and dental care and health education for the approximately 2,000 villagers. After being forced away from the mainland during the brutal regime of the Khmer Rouge, these communities are in desperate need of medical care. One of the most important ways to make these small and isolated communities healthier is to provide education on the prevention of Dengue Fever and Malaria. Training in women’s health, HIV/STD prevention, hygiene, and nutrition are the sustainable ways we can help create a healthier future for the more than 4000 people living in the Koh Rong. In addition to health education, IMR will provide much needed medical services , acute dental care, and supplies. The islands have limited resources, limited job opportunities, and limited services, making the lives of the villagers challenging. Infections and parasites go untreated, wounds fester, and 75% of the villagers are malnourished. These are just some of the reasons for IMR to continue to work in the Archipelago. IMR is honored to be invited back for the fourth year, in partnership with the Song Saa Foundation, to continue our efforts in the Koh Rong.

Lodging

Our medical team will be staying in the exclusive luxury villas of Song Saa Private Island. Secluded in one of the world’s most pristine landscapes are the islands of the Koh Rong Archipelago. Your team will travel via private yacht from mainland Cambodia to the resort, and will continue to venture out daily to reach the island communities.

Trip Highlights

trip_InfoHighlightsAside from the beautiful people of the Koh Rong, the daily boat rides aboard a private yacht to the islands, and the incredible beauty all around you, is Song Saa. Ranked 4th by Fodor's in the "Trip of a Lifetime" category, you will be enchanted by the view from every window and the island people that live beyond the view. You will have the remarkable experience of truly making a difference in the lives of people living in difficult and desperate circumstance.

Extend Your Stay

trip_InfoExtendedStayExtend your stay to take advantage of several excursions which IMR can help arrange including stay at the Song Saa Private Island at a substantially reduced rate: http://songsaa.com . If the rest of Asia is your desire, visit some of the regions most renowned sites in Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, or Thailand. Within Cambodia, fly to Angkor Wat and spend a few days seeing a place of great peace and power, then take the ferry down the Tonle Sap Lake to Phnom Penh, while watching the fishing families who live in the floating villages along the river banks. Reaching beyond Cambodia, visit her Southeast Asian neighbors by air or bus, or continue along the gulf via well traveled paths, ensuring a tourist friendly journey.

About The Mission Trip

trip_InfoAboutInternational Medical Relief is committed to helping the people of Panama. IMR has sent 7 teams in the last three years to Panama, working with indigenous people and small villages throughout the country. On this trip, you will be part of a continuing effort to help some of Panama’s poorest groups of indigenous people. The team will travel by various modes of transportation into the Panamanian jungle. This jungle adventure will allow you and your team to camp but you won't be roughing it. Gourmet food and great friends will make the conditions something you never want to leave! The Republic of Panama is located in Central America. Panama is bordered by the Pacific Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, Costa Rica, and Columbia. The striking landscape of Panama varies from mountains to long stretches of pristine beaches. Rich in natural resources and minerals, the landscape is scattered with waterfalls. Panama is known for the Panama Canal and this must see engineering wonder is on our list of things to do.

About Clinic

trip_InfoClinicThese indigenous people have greatly limited chances of survival if their illnesses are not diagnosed and treated. According to the World Health Organization, diarrheal diseases, cholera, and pneumonia are among those diseases devastating the people of Panama. Communicable diseases are not the threats, however. Alcoholism, poverty, and a lack of potable drinking water all contribute to the public health issues of these communities. Indigenous people comprise 8% of Panama's population but 19% of the poor and 35% of the extreme poor. Hypertension and diabetes are on the rise, as they are everywhere. The IMR team will help ensure that these tribes survive and have the health care that they need – we combat these acute illnesses through a strong focus on preventative education and acute medical and dental care. You can expect to see and treat many skin infections including tinea, impetigo, cutaneous leishmaniasis, and staph infections. Scabies and lice are also prevalent. You'll see ear infections, upper and lower respiratory tract infections, and many different vaginal infections. Leptospirosis and giardia are also common conditions. From an education perspective, your team will focus on clean drinking water, water storage, and sanitation. Please join us as we return to Panama to care for people with very limited access to care. To help you give the best care possible, your translators will speak excellent English and Spanish. We will add additional local translators as needed for the indigenous languages. We need your help! Please join this amazing team!

Lodging

This trip will be a mix of camping (or sleeping inside a building) and hotels. It will have the best of all worlds--time in the jungle, time in the city, plus wonderful food! You will experience life in the small villages and may have the opportunity for some amazing birdwatching . The harpy eagle is Panama's national bird, but the bird to watch for is the famous emerald-green quetzal!

trip_InfoHighlightsA one-day tour of the Panama Canal and the Miraflores Lock Visitors Center is included with this trip. We hope to see one of the massive cruise or container ships slip through the Miraflores lock during our visit. It is remarkable to see how the ships are guided through the locks as they silently rise and fall. Your team will also have the rare opportunity to visit some of the famous pristine landscape of Panama while experience one of the most famous engineering wonders of the world. You will also be able to take in some of the lush landscape famous for Panama and view some of the numerous waterfalls cascading down throughout the countryside during your well-deserved rest day. Panama is famous for handicrafts and you will certainly have some time to shop during this medical mission. You will be able to choose from molas (bright panels of cloth with intricate patterns and stitching), beautiful plaited baskets, polares (intricate and spectacularly beautiful traditional outfits), and more!

Extend Your Stay

Many of our volunteers have extended their stays at the back end of the trip to take advantage of the world-class sport fishing or kayaking in the Panama Canal. You can take a real tram tour of the rainforest or enjoy the Gatun Lake Expedition. You can see Panama's only volcano and the famous Quetzal at the Parque Nacional Volcan Baru or search for the Geoffroy's tamarin monkey - found only in Panama! Howler monkeys are an experience all to themselves. No matter your interest or desired activity level, Panama will surprise you and enchant you. The IMR office is here to help you extend your stay!
