Taking part in a GOtoGROW mission trip is a great way to follow your passion while helping those who need it most. Haiti and Nicaragua are the two poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere and medical teams are always needed to help their citizens survive.
Since 2010, Bless Back Worldwide has provided care for over 20,000 patients. We launched GOtoGROW in January of 2018 and have selected five GOtoGROW scholarship winners to serve in Haiti & Nicaragua since the program's inception.
