Thursdays | Volunteer with Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children

FIMRC is the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children, which envisions a world in which all children have an equal opportunity to benefit from modern medicine. The Berkeley Chapter of FIMRC is currently looking for motivated individuals who are interested in volunteering abroad or participating in local, youth health initiatives, such as the Eggster Egghunt and Learning Festival. If that's you, come to a meeting on Thursdays, at 7 PM in 186 Barrows. As a member, you will also receive a discount on Princeton Review MCAT Services! If you have any questions, email us at cal.fimrc@gmail.com. Hope to see you there!

What is Vive Peru? Why do I have to pay to volunteer?
Vive Peru is a nonprofit organization pending 501(c)(3) status dedicated to fostering understanding of Latin American and Peruvian culture and providing much-needed aid to Peruvian communities. We work to promote cultural understanding and implement innovative and self-sustainable programs in the areas of health, education, social work and engineering. Our programs, outreach work and direct donations are funded completely through volunteer donations, which allow our work to continue and our program to be self-sustainable. This past year, 92 university students from across the country joined us to donate 6380 volunteer hours and over $13,000 in donated materials and outreach programs to communities in need in Peru. At local medical campaigns on the coast and in the Andes, we were able to attend to more than 600 patients with medical consultation and medications.
