APPNA Medical Mission Guatemla
It was a very successful mission where we saw and treated if needed 431 patients that would not have the benefit of being seen by a physician if it weren't for this team. We provided free medications as needed for treatment and also Vitamins to girls and women between the age of 12-45 thanks to a grant from Vitamin Angels.....

APPNA Rohingya Relief Mission

By now we are sure that you are all well aware of the Humanitarian crisis posed by Rohingya refugees coming from Myanmar to Cox's Bazar area of Bangladesh. The Bangladesh Government has been very gracious to accept the refugees but their resources are limited. It is a small Country with a huge population to care for.

You can volunteer at  http://appna.org/medicalcorps/. Please contact Ms. Jennifer Watson, JD at  appnajennifer@gmail.com for more information. Let us show the world that APPNA really shines when and where a humanitarian crisis strikes.
