My Travel Story

I'm currently a sophomore at Columbus State University, studying Biology. One of the oppurtunities I have come across is a medicine journey to Andros Island of The Bahamas, for a week. On this journey, I will have the chance to volunteer at the clinic on Andros Island to assist with injured locals, animals at the veterinary clinic and marine life. Because their only hospital is located in Nassau, the clinic is the locals' first place of aid before being shipped to Nassau. I will be accompanied by falculty and at least 10-15 other students. We will also get the chance to make our own natural remedies and teas using the natural growing plants on the island with the help of the locals. I will also be conducting reasearch and trying to solve different issues while learning how natural plants effects the human body as well as the animals. At the end of my trip, I will have earned four credits towards my degree and be a few steps closer to becoming a physician. 

All donations are gratly appreciated as the will strictly be used towards my expenses to and from Andros Island.

 

Thanks in advance,
