Price: $990 (covers hostel stay, meals for five days, supplies to support the clinics and the projects)

There will be additional costs (excursions, travel insurance, spending money, etc) that will be confirmed after registration of the trip and the first round of flights have been booked.
On this trip, three to four days will be dedicated to working in a mobile clinic, where students will be shadowing doctors/nurses in various stations such as dentistry, general medicine, and triage. One or two days will be allocated to working on a specific project, which can range from building a staircase to planting a garden. During the evenings, students will go on various excursions and tours to learn about the culture in Cusco, Peru.
Because airfare prices often change, there are multiple deadlines to sign up for the trip, with the first deadline having the cheapest airfare. To sign up for the trip, please fill out the below form and create an account on the website by clicking the icon on the top right of the page.
To reduce the costs, students can fundraise for themselves through GoFundMe or the 95:5 campaign that MEDLIFE International offers after signing up for the trip. There will also be fundraising events hosted by MEDLIFE NoVA and based on the number of hours each student works to fundraise in these events, points will be assigned to each student. (1 point = 1 hour) After a student has accumulated 10 points, then he/she would be able to receive financial aid for the trip. The money given to the student receiving financial aid will be entirely dependent on the amount of funds raised and the number of students qualifying for financial aid. A student may choose to donate the money they gained in financial aid to MEDLIFE International.
