t’was the night before Skills Saturday and all throughout the College of Health Sciences, not a creature was stirring not even a mouse (or rat, from 5th floor labs)!!! The closet was STACKED with supplies to be packed, with the hopes that all homeless/hygiene kits will be soon intact.

The Brigaders were nestled, all snug in their beds while visions of the Empowerment and the Holistic Model danced in their heads.

With @cassie_laibly stocked with purel and @abigailmkuborn & @carmenprater with masks, had finally settled down for a short GB leadership nap.

Alarms have been set, rooms have been prepped, and we are ready to take on a socially distanced Skills Saturday!!! Global Health is Local Health!! We can’t wait to give back to our own roots, right here in MKE!! See y’all bright and early at 9AM!!!

Marquette Global Brigaders - It has been a few years since we have been able to brigade in Honduras, but we all have that special brigade moment that stays in our hearts. Please consider supporting the Global Brigades team in Honduras as they continue to offer medical assistance to those in need. #MarquetteUniversity #GlobalBrigades #BeTheDifference #GB365

When can you help? NOW🚨

People currently are in great need of shelter, clothing and food, and will soon be in need of healthcare assistance such as G.I. diseases, respiratory, and skin infections. Want to help? This is how:

Our Global Brigades team in Honduras is providing medical assistance and medications to those in need. We are coordinating the participation of local volunteers, medics, and other people to help with the execution of the Medical Brigades. We are working with the Honduran government and local entities to determine the places with the most need.

Hello Global Brigades friends and family! As you may have seen in our recent posts, despite COVID-19 limiting our ability to go in-country, we will be making a huge step for Marquette’s Global Medical Brigades as we take our brigade LOCAL!! Our local brigade stems from our mission that global health is local health. Many challenges that we have seen individuals face in Panama, are occurring right here in our neighboring communities of Milwaukee, WI!! This year we are partnering with City on a Hill and Guest House, two organizations that align with Global Brigades mission of empowerment and sustainability. We will be creating hygiene kits for BOTH of these organizations on top of working on these organizations for a local brigade. In order to make our brigade as SUCCESSFUL as possible, we need YOUR help! We have an Amazon Wishlist that allows you to directly donate by purchasing Wishlist items that will be sent DIRECTLY to us! We have already had some incredible donors send us some Wishlist items! We want to thank our brigader Ella Geise’s family for sending us some incredible donations! We are so grateful! Attached below is the link for our amazon Wishlist! Be sure to write on a gift tag when you purchase a donation from our Wishlist, that way can give you a shout out on our page!! Thank you for supporting our brigade!! We wouldn’t be able to do this without all of YOU!!!

Our hearts are heavy with the news of the passing of dear Sor Maria Rosa Legol.

So many lives touched by such a selfless servant of the Lord. Prayers and thoughts going out to Global Brigades, Global Brigades Honduras, Sociedad Amigos de los Niños, and School Sisters of St. Francis.

Our Global Brigades team mourns the passing of one of the founders and inspiration to our organization, Sor Maria Rosa Leggol. A life to be celebrated for the tens of thousands of orphaned and abandoned children that she raised in Honduras and countless more around the world that she impacted with her endless grace, relentless faith, and determination to help those in need.

We send our deepest sympathy to the Sociedad Amigos de los Niños family and the entire country of Honduras for this tremendous loss.

Huge love goes out to the all our healthcare providers from our Medical Brigade in Panama this past January who are continuing to care for others both here in the US and Panama. (This includes all our brigaders that are CNA's and EMT's as well!)

A challenge of sorts, call out to other Global Brigades Medical Chapters - do you have any supplies currently on hand for an upcoming brigade that you could otherwise donate to your local hospital or fire departments in the interim? Thanks in advance!

Marquette's Medical Brigade sends a HUGE shout out to our 'in house' partner - Michelle Raclawski in Marquette College of Health Sciences. Michelle helps keep the monies straight for our brigade - from Seroogy's Chocolates sales, program sales at the Marquette Men's Basketball ball games, Café Holístico sales and even the fun fundraisers at Sobelmans at Marquette (one coming up on Sunday 2/16!).

We are BLESSED to having her help guide our endeavors as a brigade!

2020 Marquette Global Brigades Alumnae Survey

#MyGBStory is #OurGBStory - In recent reflection, since 2003, between the Medical and March/May Public Health Brigades from Marquette - there have been 715 individuals - students, special guests, health care providers and advisors - that have experienced the love and camaraderie from both GB staff and local communities in Honduras, Nicaragua and now Panama. These 715 individuals have participated in more than 1196 brigade experiences! (Some have even gone on to work for GB!)

Our January Public Health Brigade is 3 brigades strong - our Dental Brigade is 2 brigades strong and the newest chapter to Marquette's campus is the Business brigade which is now 1 brigade strong!

THANK YOU to the first group of MU students that headed to Honduras in 2003 (and the one that signed off on all their waivers!). THANK YOU to the GB Staff in Honduras, Nicaragua, Ghana and Panama that have hosted a Marquette Brigade and allowed us to work alongside rural communities in your countries.

(We will celebrate our 20th Anniversary of 'brigading' in 2022 - are you a MUGB Alum? Please complete the attached google survey AND share not only #MyGBStory, but the survey with those that brigaded with you - student/student leaders brigaders, special guests, health care providers and advisors alike!)

Can you believe it? Marquette will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the first student group from Marquette that headed to Honduras in 2003 in 2022!

A very rare few minutes when the Marquette Business, Dental and both Medical Brigades were able to meet up in Cerro Plata this morning.

The Medical Brigade goes from Medical Red to ‘Marquette’ Blue for the next two days of WASH - Water Brigade. #WeAreMarquette #GB365

01/03/2020

Three of our four chapters leave for Panama today - Business, Medical and Public Health, with Dental arriving in two days. Thankful for the Marquette Alum that realized that they could #BeTheDifference in 2003 and created a journey for so many since. Our lives will be forever changed because of the collaborative efforts of the rural communities in Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Ghana that have partnered with Global Brigades.

A huge thanks to the following health care professionals that will be accompanying the Medical Brigade this year - Dr. Lani Stockwell and Dr. Ann Millard from Marquette's Doctorate of Occupational Therapy Program; Dr. Shawn Laibly, Dr. David Lenz and Dr. Nancy Beery - brigading with their their daughters and son; Dr. Ed Nelsen-Freund, Emmy Sippel, Dr. Ted O'Reilly's and Kyle Kinderman - returning brigade experience. (We love our MUGB Student Alum - go Kyle!) A huge thank you to Dr. Carolyn Smith who continues to not only help with the medication and supply guidance (and her sister Cindy too!), but brigades with us as well!

Thank you to all that have supported the efforts of Marquette Global Brigades in the past and will continue in the future.

#GivingTuesday - Opportunity #2

Monetary donations made to the Marquette University Medical Brigade January 2020 Panama page on the empowered website help us to continue to support the per brigader costs for both our student brigaders and the health care professionals that so graciously give of their time and talents and brigade along with us! For years, through team fundraising and generous silent donors, the Marquette Medical Brigaders have received support to offset their personal brigade fundraising goal.

Support to an individual brigader or into the General Donations fund both equally support the Marquette Medical Brigade. Your gracious support means a great deal to each of the 62 students and 10 health care professionals!

We love being able to see all of the positive impact in partner communities that YOU helped us make through every program! If you're interested in being a part of this impact next year, go to www.globalbrigades.org for more details!
