reading. This is because some of them get so nervous and tense that the
readings can be affected. Finally, those with consistent highs levels are asked
to visit a doctor in the city for proper care.
This mission trip allows me to engage with the youth and share with them reading materials sports equipment such as soccer and volleyballs. I try to bring with me whatever I can find and that can be useful to villagers Once my arrival is announced, many villagers including
some of the nearby communities come to great and expose their medical predicaments. I am asking for your support. You can help me in many ways, by donating over the counter medicine, pain treatment medicine such as bengay which helps to alleviate arthritis and back pain for the elderly, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, aspirin, band-aid, soccer, and volleyballs, jumping ropes, pens, etc. You can also donate on our website ouaganet.org to support this mission trip..
