Preparing for the Unexpected

Most of our volunteers spend many months preparing themselves for their service trip abroad. When 2-time alumna Trang Tran arrived in Peru to find her luggage was still in Florida, those plans quickly changed. Luckily, she was traveling with the FIMRC Family, and she packed her optimism and flexibility in a carry-on!

Partnering with Partners in Health

Partners in Health (PIH) strives to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair by establishing relationships with long-term sister organizations abroad. Their mission aligns so well with FIMRC, that we partnered in Lima to execute much-needed health campaigns for communities that have been recently affected by flooding and landslides. Learn about the impact Earlham College, PIH, and FIMRC had within communities surrounding Lima, Peru!

Celebrating Strong Moms
