Amira's Medical Mission Trip to Nigeria

Supporting: Rise & Walk: Medical Mission to Nigeria for The GEANCO Foundation


Campaign has ended.


Hey everyone, 

In about two months I am heading to Awka, Nigeria for 10 days on a medical mission trip. The team which I'll be part of is hoping to perform 30 or more hip and knee joint replacements. Some of the patients have been in excruciating pain for years unable to get surgery due to cost or lack of surgical options.

Myself and the rest of the anesthesia team specifically are going to ensure these patients stay comfortable, asleep an safe during their operation.

Please consider donating whatever you can to help me cover my long flight there as well as the supplies we are bringing and housing we may need when there. 

Here is a short video about their last mission trip.

Thank you from me but mostly thank you from the people you are helping.

From November 10 - 19, the GEANCO Foundation ( will undertake a special medical mission to Nigeria.  For the fifth time, GEANCO's surgical team will perform hip and knee replacements on poor patients there, where the need is almost unimaginable. 

Each of our mission team members is working hard to raise money to help defray travel expenses and the cost of our supplies and equipment.  Your donation will help us impact so many lives, please give generously!  

Thank you in advance for your support!

How would you like to support?
