When insanitation and infection flourish in foreign counties, Globalife Journeys makes it their mission to help.
For doTERRA Wellness Advocates Hope and Kenneth Clark, making people more aware of the world and serving those in need is their mission. Having both experienced the life-changing effects of mission trips as young adults, they created Globalife Journeys so others could experience the eye-opening and rewarding privilege of serving people around the world.
Globalife Journeys is an organization that arranges mission trips to world-wide communities in desperate need. The goal of Globalife is to help mission trip participants take notice of the circumstances of the world around them and then act on service opportunities that will change people for the better.
One of the countries that Globalife serves is Guatemala. When their team visits Guatemala, they work to comfort and support women and children who have been abused, violated, and are at risk of further domestic violence. Globalife serves at one of only two domestic and sexual abuse shelters in Guatemala.
Additionally, Globalife works to promote health and educate others. Due to unsanitary conditions in parts of Guatemala, many individuals acquire skin infection, staph infection, and infection from cuts. Because the medical resources available are very limited in Guatemala, Globalife resupplies a medicine cabinet when they visit the county. This medicine helps reduce the spread of infection and other health issues associated with insanitation. Globalife also coordinates with the shelters to provide hygiene and healthcare education, emotional wellness counseling, clothing and shoes for those in need, and more. Globalife is also in the beginning stages of creating a transitioning scholarship program for the young women who must leave the shelter but cannot return to their families.
Aside from Guatemala, Globalife leads mission trips to Nepal, Mexico, and Nigeria. Each mission trip’s focus differs according to the needs of each location and is structured to create the greatest impact on those they help. By utilizing the strengths of their team members, their services range anywhere from comforting children battling cancer to serving individuals with disabilities and addictions. Globalife is an organization that knows the power of the human touch, and through their caring interactions, they provide hope to those they serve.
