Airfare for Emmaus Medical Mission June 6-10, 2012

If you plan on going to the upcoming medical mission (June6-10), please do not purchase your airfare tickets yet, we will be discussing this at our meeting on March 10.

Donations

Dear Friends, 

 

I would like to communicate our need for your prayers and financial help!  We will set out on another Medical Mission trip to Sumpango, Guatemala on June 6-10, 2012.

 

While we are there, we will adapt a local small school as a health clinic, and will provide thousands of medicine pills and vitamins as well as hundreds of medical procedures, including surgeries.

 

Can you please help us provide these much needed items?

 

-   $8.00 pays for a lab draw & result

-   $10.00 pays for an x-ray

-   $100 pays for each anesthesia given during surgery

 

Will you please make a donation, any donation to our mission? (You can do it right now while you are thinking about it)  We do this on a shoestring budget and everything helps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

you can send it to us via US Mail, at:

 

PO Box 452305

Miami, FL 33245-2305

 

make checks/money orders payable to:

Emmaus Medical Mission

 

Anything you give will help!  We also need your prayers.

 

With our prayers,

 

Emmaus Medical Mission, Inc
