Lauren Fedore and Jeremiah Tracy invite wedding guests to make a charitable donation to MMFC missions to Rwanda in place of a traditional wedding gift:
"In 2014 I (Jeremiah) traveled to a rural town in Rwanda called Gitwe to perform volunteer medical work. I traveled with a group called Medical Missions for Children that organizes trips to various locations around the world, all year long.
I participated in a yearly trip to Rwanda where thyroid goiter is endemic due to the local diet as well as a lack of supplemental iodine. There, I worked with a team of other specialists to provide surgical treatment for these patients.
This trip is run every year and relies entirely on donations for financial support. Although I am not able to participate in the mission in 2015, your contribution can help the people of Gitwe.
In place of a wedding gift for, please consider making a donation to Medical Missions for Children’s Gitwe Rwanda trip."
