"Don't wait for the world to change for you, change it yourself" Kimonui Holgen
Kimonui Holgen is one of the most amazingly adventurous, caring and engaged people I know. I've rarely encountered someone who lives his beliefs as fully as he does. Kimonui embodies the belief, "Don't wait for the world to change for you, change it yourself."
Project Helping Hands Medical Mission
In less than 8 weeks, Kimonui Holgen is traveling to the Upper Amazon Basin with a Project Helping Hands medical mission.
As part of the Project Helping Hands medical team, he'll visit some of the most remote areas of the Upper Amazon Basin in towns without doctors or pharmacies. Hundreds of people come from many miles away seeking some type of care.
Could You Help? Contribute $5, $10, $25 or $100
The Helping Hands Medical Team must pay their own way and bring all medical supplies themselves. Kimonui has already raised $1500 of the $2500 travel expenses needed to make this trip. He needs to raise $1000 more for his own travel.
Could you contribute $5, $25, $50 or even $100 to support Kimonui's travel to the Amazon with Project Helping Hands medical team?
No contribution is too small. Monetary contributions collected above the actual cost of the trip are put into a trip-specific Project Helping Hands fund, used to extract people out of the jungle to the nearest town where they can get surgeries (cleft palate repair, appendectomy, etc) or other treatments that they're unable to deliver due to the rugged conditions on this trip. Any excess funds at the end of the trip are used to buy medical equipment for local clinics that they would otherwise not be able to afford.
The deadline for contributions is June 30, 2011.
