Kristi Braunlich, 24, wanted to put her skills as a nurse to good use and help those in need before starting medical school this month, so she contacted International Samaritan to volunteer at our medical center in Ocotillo, a garbage dump community in Honduras. Kristi spent nine days assisting the center’s physician, Dr. Josue Lagos. The doctor was grateful to have her assistance; together they treated 80 and 100 people each day.
Last week, The Monroe Evening News featured Kristi in a front page article about her medical mission. In the article, she said, “I have always felt an obligation to help the underprivileged…I cannot do everything, but I can at least do something.”
If you are a medical professional who has felt called to utilize your skills serving the underprivileged, please contact International Samaritan at International Samaritan and tell us about yourself.
