I just returned from an inspirational medical journey in Kenya, Africa.
Medicis has created a philanthropic organization called Passion to Heal which funds Free the Children. This group has gone into villages in Africa and built schools, medical clinics, brought clean water to regional areas and created jobs for the village women making beautiful beadwork. Over 7,000 children now attend school in the village I volunteered in.
I worked in the Pediatric, Dermatology and "anything that walked in" clinic! The unexpected highlight was saving a septic 3 week old child whose parents had walked 2 hours to the clinic. The Kenyans were gracious, grateful and working diligently towards improving their education and environment for sustainability.
This was definitely an extraordinary, amazing experience.
