WELCOME!

This marks the inaugural post for the FIMRCblog. The goal of the blog is to link current, past, and future volunteers through the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children. It is our hopes that the entries on this blog will primarily come from you - our readers! We want to hear and share your stories and experiences abroad with others. This is a central part of our current PR campaign which we hope will increase volunteer involvement both domestic and abroad. The goal is to post at least one volunteer story a week so check back regularly. For those new to FIMRC, check out our website at www.fimrc.org. FIMRC is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization dedicated to improving pediatric and maternal health in the developing world through the implementation of innovative and self-sustainable health improvement programs. FIMRC is a self-sustainable organization with project related funding provided from business operations – the Global Health Volunteer Program engages approximately 700 individuals annually who volunteer their time abroad and make a contribution in exchange for the experience FIMRC provides. Over 90% of FIMRC’s revenue is derived from our volunteer program. Our Mission is to provide access to medical care for the millions of underprivileged and medically underserved children around the world.

Check back in a couple of days to see our first entry. If you want to share your story, email Jake Ezell at jake.ezell@fimrc.org and he will share with you the details of the blog. Stay tuned...
