Mission of 2019

Feb 18-23. The mission of 2019 will be 3 days shorter than prior Philippines missions. As in 2018, we will be in Manila on Monday and Tuesday and transfer by air to Cebu on Tuesday evening. We will work at a number of locations in and near Cebu Wednesday – Saturday, as we have done in prior years. But rather than have a day of R&R before resuming our work on Monday and Tuesday, we will have our farewell dinner on Saturday evening. Those who want to depart will head to the airport for flights around midnight. Those who want to enjoy the Philippines for a few extra days are free to do so. This shorter schedule will be easier for our Domestic Team.

As can be seen in our Interested Vasectomists page, 6 vasectomists and 1 assistant have committed to this mission with air tickets and deposit donations.They are paying their own airfare, room, and board to volunteer their time and expertise to the people of the Philippines. In addition, they are making added donations to NSVI to cover the costs of performing vasectomies at multiple locations in and near Manila and Cebu.
