We are spending our LAST DAY of PY 2019 at a university in a Conkal, Yucatán! Our population mainly consists of students and adults who have experienced noise exposure. We are so sad that it is our last day, because we have had a spectacular week! Thank you so much to everyone who has and continues to support our endeavors. It means so much to us, and it means even more to the people we help in the Yucatán!
Day 3 and 4 in Yucatán are officially finished! Yesterday we were at a school in Mérida, Yucatán and today we were at a convention center in Campeche. We saw over 500 patients with a variety of hearing and balance needs. These past few days have been an amazing experience where all of our students have really developed their clinical audiology skills. We can’t believe that tomorrow is our last day for PY 2019!
Hola! Day 1 of Project Yucatán was a success!
We screened over 300 children and adults at a hospital in Tekax, Yucatan. We are so thankful for your continued support on our endeavors to help this population get the hearing healthcare they deserve! We have 2 days left in our campaign, and every donation will go directly towards funding this trip.
THANK YOU to everyone who has shown support for our project during our first week! We appreciate all of our gracious donors!
Currently we have raised $1,025 which means we are 29% funded. There are still 24 days left in our campaign, and we believe we can make it to our goal! We leave for our trip in less than 3 weeks, and we are working on fundraising and gathering supplies needed to serve our patients.
Hear from Karlee, a third-year student who will be attending Project Yucatán for the THIRD time this year:
"Project Yucatán has quickly become my favorite week of the year! There is truly no better feeling than being able to deliver much-needed hearing healthcare services -- something we so easily take for granted. Being able to give the gift of hearing goes so much further than just maximizing the ability to hear sound; it's giving someone an opportunity to communicate, to increase quality of life and to form meaningful relationships with family and friends. Please help us reach our goal so that we can continue to serve this amazing population of people!"
Your donation is SO important and touches a community which is so grateful for our service!
