2020 Middle East Holy Land Medical
- Mar 20 2020 - Mar 29 2020
About the Journey
Through our partnership with Seeds of Hope, this global(x) team will head to the Middle East Holy Land. It’s an area rich in religious and spiritual history, and a place of extreme contrast in terrain—from fertile farmland to arid desert.
We’re looking to build a dynamic combination of physicians (both general practitioners and specialists), physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, ophthalmologists, and first responders to serve on this medical team. We also need nonmedical professionals who will provide logistics support and focus more relationally on the people in the community.
The team will host a medical clinic for five days, where the medical specialists will perform exams and prescribe and dispense medication. They’ll also visit and provide check-ups to residents living in an elderly care home and possibly a nearby rural community.
Nonmedical teammates will be responsible for the clinic’s logistics and care for those who wait while others are examined. After clinic hours, the team will visit local homes. There is also ample time for touring historic and sacred sites, which can include a lot of walking and hiking.
The journey to the Holy Land is an incredible experience, and providing medical care to the community helps fulfill a critical need. If you’re interested in joining this team, apply today!
