Why do you travel? Pleasure and business are common reasons to take a trip, but one, perhaps less familiar, type of travel has become increasingly popular. Mission trips and other types of “PhilanthroTravel” are occurring with increasing frequency as people work to give back while they see the world. Recently, Passport Health teamed up with Project CURE, the largest provider of donated medical supplies in the world, to deliver lifesaving supplies to a hospital in Panama.
In the videos below, you’ll see interviews and highlights of this trip to Panama that Passport Health was fortunate enough to help with. During this mission to the Central American country, volunteers delivered a cargo container of medical supplies to a hospital in need to help the local people.
Remember, a key part of any travel to any region is keeping yourself safe and healthy before, during and after your trip. Let Passport Health be a part of your journey; schedule an appointment at a Passport Health travel clinic before leaving on your trip so that we can help you stay healthy with proper vaccination, medications and health advice. Taking care of your health is important so that you are best able to help others!
Just one question remains: What will your journey be?
Project CURE seems like an awesome cause. From what I have heard, one of the biggest things that is lacking in third world countries is medical supplies. Often times, there are people who are willing to volunteer. However, if there are no supplies, then there isn’t much that can be done.
