My name is Ashley Bratrud; I’m an Expansion Associate at the non-profit organization MEDLIFE. MEDLIFE partners with communities in impoverished regions of Peru, Ecuador, and Tanzania to increase their access to MEDS: Medicine, Education, and Development. Our mission is accomplished through Mobile Clinics, where international volunteers and local professionals work together to empower marginalized communities in sustainable ways.
MEDLIFE Mobile Clinic trips offer students a unique opportunity to utilize and expand Spanish language skills, whether beginners or advanced speakers. Throughout the week, volunteers assist local nurses and doctors in mobile clinics, participate in culturally sensitive education programs, and work on community focused development projects. Volunteers will gain language experience, while having a direct and tangible impact on the communities we serve and contributing to a larger, sustainable solution.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you!
