Medical Mission trip to Ethiopia!

We are delighted to announce a second mission trip to our care point in 2013!!  

You are invited to join our medical mission team October 12-21, 2013!  We are recruiting medical professionals to provide health care for orphans and extremely vulnerable children and their families at two Children’s HopeChest Care-points!  We will be serving the children at Project Greenlight in Addis Ababa and our Care-point at Grace Baptist Church, Kombolcha, Ethiopia.  There will only be 20 spots available on the October 2013 team

Our mission is to provide medical care to the children and family members, build relationships with the children and be a reflection of God’s love.  

We will have a few spots available for non-medical personnel to help with set-up, intake, games, and loving the children.  We are looking for a photograph, puppeteer or others talented in entertaining children ages 6-18 years old.

Registration is now open for our medical trip to Ethiopia. If you are interested in joining the team, please e-mail me at mblueberry.madamblueberry@gmail.com
We would be delighted to have you join us! If you are ready to sign up, please complete the online application at http://onechildcampaign.showitsite.com/#/ethiopia/

One Child Campaign has prepared the in-country travel package on our behalf and has fixed the cost at $1,390 per person - which includes hotels, transportation, translators, and meals.  You will be responsible to book your flight.  We will meet in Washington DC and fly to Ethiopia together. The cost of round-trip airfare to Ethiopia will vary. Trip/medical evacuation insurance can be purchased at the time of booking your flight. The cost for insurance varies based on gender and age. Entrance visas for Ethiopia are $20 per person.

Spread the word!  Share this blog post with others.
We’d love to have you join our prayer team or fundraising team (to purchase medical supplies for the trip and a treasure box items).  We’ll also have a medical supply wish list available soon.  Please contact me at mblueberry.madamblueberry@gmail.com to see how you can make this an amazing trip not only for our team and but to bless the children!
