My name is Brandon Flock and I am a student at the University of Colorado-Boulder volunteering with a non-profit organization called Timmy Global Health. Throughout the year we fundraise money, medical supplies, and medicine to take down to Quito, Ecuador. We volunteer in a clinic there for a week, seeing over 500 patients during our time there. Timmy Global Health emphasizes sustainability in Quito’s health care through education and continuity of care. We partner with a local hospital in Quito, Tierra Nueva, who follow up with patients after we leave. Every 2-3 months our organization sends a chapter to the communities to also keep up with patients.
The money we fundraise (approximately $15,000) during the year goes directly to the clinics and patients, it does NOT pay for the volunteers to get to Ecuador. This is where YOU can help! I am hoping to get some help with the costs of the trip, as I am a young student going to college on student loans and financial aid – anything and everything truly helps.
This trip will allow me to directly help people on the global stage! I anticipate that through my involvement in Quito I will become a better individual: improving my communications skills and becoming a more empathetic individual.
Thank you all!
