**COVID update: May 22-31, 2020 Mission On Hold**
ISM has a standing arrangement for the permanent availability of the government hospital located on Biri Island. This is a long trip that involves an overnight stop in Manila at the beginning and at the end of our trip, a flight to Samar, and a bus ride, followed by a small boat ride to Biri. $2500pp includes round-trip airfare from LAX, in-country transportation, food, and lodging.
These are developing world facilities, sometimes with running water, less often hot water, occasional electrical shortages, etc. The local people are wonderful and gracious, and the patients are amazingly grateful.
Your donations provide OR equipment, transportation, medical supplies. We would also love to have your company and skills on our next mission. Let's talk about it.
