Ecuador ECU20-03a Closed
March 14 - March 21
Amazingly affordable opportunity for vet students, and one LA vet! Vet students with surgical experience (3rd/4th year) especially needed.
For the first time CVM is partnering with Baptist Mid Missions and sending a team to Santa Isabel, Ecuador, in celebration of BMM’s 100 year anniversary as a faith mission! Vet work on this team includes a lot of SA rural clinic work: vaccinations, deworming, spays & neuters, wound and parasite treatment, etc. With the participation of an LA vet member, there is a chance the team could spend a day or two in the nearby mountain village treating large animals also. Ministry work will be focused on helping to support and strengthen relationships with community members to further the work of our host partner and local missionaries.
Don’t miss your chance to be a part of something new and exciting! Please contact us for more details.
