You may want to check out CMDA.org. They are going to Ethiopia in february and I heard it's going to be a great trip. I went to Zambia a year ago in june. The leader really knows how to make it fun and he has such a good rapport with the African people. It was a great experience. On our way to Zambia we had to stay in Addis Ethiaopia. The people in Ethiopia are wonderful.You definately won't be sorry that you went if you find a good organization to go with. I may go in feb. as well as long as everything works out with my health.

- 0Feb 17, '08 by dragonfly01Hi Mia, I would be very interested in seeing your pictures and reviewing any research information you would like to share regarding medical mission trips. I have 20 years experience as an RN. Most of my experience is in the following 3 areas: L&D, Surgery and Oncology. 2 of my 3 children are off to college, and I am thinking about getting involved in mission trips. I do not even know where to begin.

I've gone an various missions trips in the past, but am excited to have a skill to bring in the future. I'm also doing a presentation to my classmates about volunteer nursing /nursing medical missions. I would love to get your list of agencies/ministries that you compiled on your facebook. thanks!

I went on a three week medical missions trip to Zambia, Africa. The people were wonderful and soooo greatful. I went with GHO. They are a very good organization. They do many trips to Africa every year and are very organized. Aslo, the accomadations were good and the food was good.
If you belong to a church or synagongue you can send out letters asking for support. The trips to Africa are about 2,000-3,000 dollars.
If you have any more questions about my trip just pm me.
