- Making a lasting impactWhat happens when you live so far away from a city with health services that you can't afford to travel there? Maybe the doctors will come to you.
Global Brigades has been helping communities in rural Honduras for almost ten years now, sending in doctors, dentists and large amounts of medication to mountainous villages that otherwise may never have another chance at seeing health care. Powered by students all across the U.S., Europe and Canada, the organization aims to help communities holistically, starting with their most essential needs - physical ones. Students at Marquette University, the school that founded Global Brigades, break down the process of what a typical medical brigade looks like, and how it begins to set a community back on the track to health.
