Join experienced trip leader Dr. Dick Linn in SE India, working with CVM partner, India Gospel League. Stay in the IGL guesthouses and travel to nearby villages to run clinics, partnering with a local pastor to help build his relationships within the communities. Vet work includes spays, neuters, deworming, and vaccinations. In addition, there is a focus on training of the community health workers in animal health issues. These trainings are very hands-on and depend on what is needed/relevant, what the health workers are interested in, and what past trainings have covered.

Team members will join Dr. Dick Linn (trip leader) and Dr. P. Dickson (local host) to work in vet camps from August 1-3, helping to connect with farmers and village volunteers and training on livestock management and keeping. Team members can then fly Delhi to Bangalore for the IGL portion of the trip. Cost: $550.**
