DESCRIPTION OF THE TRIP

This is a trip of a lifetime for a chiropractor, support members, and anyone who wants to come to Africa and experience the wildlife, the culture, and be transformed by the African sunsets.

Hosted by Dreamweaver International Executive Director, Dr. Warren Bruhl, Dr. David Neubauer, Dr. Angela Zolper, Ms. Carrie Barnett, Mr. Ken Taylor, Mr. Joseph Nkaapa, & Dr. Scott Smith

This trip will be a great opportunity for chiropractors to serve the poor and make a difference using their drugless healing skills where they are desperately needed. As well, spouses, children, and other volunteers are welcome to come on this journey. There is plenty to do and see.

Dreamweaver has a 10 acre campus located in the town of Kimana, Kenya featuring two schools and a multidisciplinary hospital under construction. Working in Kenya for more than 25 years, Dreamweaver has unique relationships that allow us to take you to places normal tourists would never be able to go and see.

Doctors and volunteers will work in schools, hospitals, in bomas (Maasai villages), orhpanages, city slums, sports fields, & national parks.

Along with serving, there is an opportunity to see the wildlife, do safari, and really take in the culture and get to know people and how they really live and work. You will also have the opportunity to work with teachers and educators and offer mentoring and one to one support.

We encourage doctors and volunteers to come prepared to be servant leaders and be humbled by the circumstances and the courage of people in Kenya. Our hope is that when you see the amazing fortitude of people, you will want to find a way to support children in education, healing programs, and sports activities we are invested in here in Kenya.

An extensive intinerary is availailble on our website: www.dreamweaver911.org and costs and other details are also available by email to dr.bruhl@dreamweaver911.org
