Puerto Rico Spring 2020 Mission Trip
Time & Location
About the Event
We welcome you to apply to join us on an amazing adventure in Puerto Rico! Come visit with the locals and see lives changed through the delivery of herbal medicine which is provided at no cost to community members in need.
Wellness Warrior Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization which promotes sustainability and wellness in underserved and impoverished communities worldwide through education, herbal medicine use, and post-disaster relief.
From March 25-31, we will be working in communities in Puerto Rico to provide care to community members of all ages. Team members will arrive at the San Juan airport before 3 pm on Wednesday, March 25 and will be transported to our team home in the mountains. The team will participate in creating herbal medicines and preparing wound care products. At each of the two or three clinic events, team members will rotate through different care providing positions, work as support staff, or create herbal medicines in the apothecary.
Team members who have previously worked with WWF on a mission trip are encouraged to apply for a position of leadership where they will be tasked with different responsibilities during the clinics. If you are interested in these opportunities, please indicate so on your application.

Team members are responsible for their own airfare and travel arrangements to and from the team house if they do not arrive within the expected timeframe provided for airport pick up and drop off. We will be heading to San Juan around 10 am Wednesday morning to provide drop-off for return flights home. Uber is available on the island and multiple stores and restaurants are close to the airport. Once the team is at the team house, members are not permitted to leave the property, unless needed to run errands or with permission, as the team will travel together throughout the week.
Team size will be limited based on participation. The maximum number of participants is 18, however this number may vary based on ground travel restrictions or needs. Once 12 people are confirmed, registration may be limited based on the availability of rental vehicles.
Once you have confirmed the dates will work for you, please fill out the attached application and submit your $150 non-refundable application fee through our online portal which can be found at the following link:
All funds must be raised prior to March 15, 2020 to assure they are received and credited to your account.
