Brazil | March 2-11, 2018

We are excited to hold an outreach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on March 2-11, 2018! This is our fourth time visiting this amazing country. The people of Brazil are in great need of quality medical/dental care and we are looking forward to the opportunity to serve them.



We will set up a general medical/dental clinic and treat the patients’ needs as they present.  We will also pray with all of our patients and give them an opportunity to receive Christ.  The team will stay in a hotel based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

All approved volunteers will need to submit a $300 non-refundable deposit to secure a spot on the team. The deposit is placed toward your total trip cost.  Upon acceptance to the Brazil team, we will provide you with the information to book your airline ticket.  Hand of Hope will pre-select the team flight and we work with a travel agent who coordinates the team’s itineraries.  It is required to book your team travel through the travel agent we provide.

If you would like to stay longer than the scheduled outreach dates for your own leisure you are welcome to make those arrangements with the travel agent at the time of booking. You will be responsible to make all of your own travel arrangements and hotel accommodation after March 10 when the team checks out of the hotel.
