Debbie Darrah - Open Heart Medical Mission
My first medical mission!
This is my birthday month and I am celebrating my birthday by raising funds for my first open-heart medical mission trip to Nigeira in September 2021. For the past two years, I have been a volunteer grant writer for VOOM Foundation, a humanitarian organization that works to raise the standards of care in Nigeria. I got involved with VOOM when Shawn Andaya-Pulliam, who I have known forever and worked with at Texas A&M Softball, needed a grant writer and asked if I would help. I have accepted an invitation to go to Nigeria in September to meet the people whose lives will be impacted.
My role on the mission will be to find a good understanding of the healthcare climate so I can return and write more impactful grants. I will also be writing some patient stories and assisting in whatever way I can to get the word out through marketing and communications.
I would love for you to consider supporting my efforts. I have included a video below about VOOM Foundation so you can learn a little more about what we do!
Thanks you in advance for your consideration!
