Hello Everyone! I have been an MICU nurse for 2 years now and I am really ready to go on a medical mission. I am taking a trip to Thailand in September and found a mission group called International Medical Relief that goes to Cambodia for 8 days. The cost to go on this medical mission is $4,700. That covers my stay (which is in a resort off base of the village we are going too that is usually $1,000 a night) my food, my travel around the area. That does not include my airfare because I opted to buy my own ticket because I am going to Thailand 2 weeks earlier before I go on the medical mission. Has anyone heard of this mission team? My friends who are fellow nurses who have gone on these mission trips said that is pricey however my living conditions make up for it. My grandfather is skeptical because he doesn't understand why I have to "donate" "pay" to go on the medical mission. His skepticism makes me nervous like I am being scammed but I have researched and they are a legit company that I know of. Can anyone offer any advice? Don't you usually have to pull forward a certain amount of money? Am I worried for nothing? Any advice or words of encouragement would be great!!
