Testimonial

“I can only say that MedTreks is amazing. I went to Kenya with them and it was one of the best trips I have ever been on. Everything was well planned and executed. When I had an unexpected need to change plans they were able to make a seamless transition and get me well taken care of. The opportunity to experience another culture’s daily life and bring the medical training and supplies to help HopeCore sustain basic health habits, was an honor. MedTreks’ goal to provide sustainable practice in community health management is like no other organization.”
