About my Fundraiser
Dear Friends and Family,

It has become very clear to us that we really do enjoy a lot of privileges that others in the world do not and that is why we have started an organization called Equipped 2 HealWe are four students at Bishop Garcia Diego High School in Santa Barbara, CA and we believe that we can make a positive difference in some lives.  The goal of Equipped 2 Heal is to raise funds and receive medical supply donations to support medical clinics in impoverished areas.  We are in our infancy but believe that we can grow the organization so that many can benefit from our work.

This spring we are going to Costa Rica to assist one of only a few resident physicians, Dr. Andrea Messeguer, in the community of Matapalo where many live in impoverished conditions.  We have gone to hospitals where we have been successful at procuring donations of medical supplies to help restock Dr. Andrea’s Playa Grande Clinic which was robbed this past October.  All of Dr. Andrea’s medical equipment and supplies were taken, including a small refrigerator containing vials of vaccinations for children, and we plan to raise money and get donations to restock the clinic. 

We hope that you will consider partnering with us so that we can reach our goal of raising $30,000 in order to restock the clinic. Your donation will go directly to the purchasing of basic medical supplies such as stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, asthma nebulizers, alcohol preps, gauze and thermometers just to name a few.  We also plan on using donations to purchase a security system for the clinic so that future robberies do not occur. 

The health and wellbeing of five communities depend on Dr. Andrea and her clinic.  During our trip this spring, we are going to assist Dr. Andrea with visits to local schools where she will be conducting physicals on children.  This is an excellent way for Dr. Andrea to determine which children need on-going medical treatment.  She is donating her time to do the physicals and we will be by her side helping in any way that we can.

We would like to thank you for considering our invitation to support Equipped 2 Heal and all who will benefit from your generosity.  We appreciate any help you choose to give.
