VCU School of Medicine Chapter

The VCU School of Medicine Chapter of Operation Helping Hands grew from the belief that medical students are a valuable volunteer resource, with the ability to make unique contributions to projects in developing countries.

We will be conducting our next mission to Taisha, Ecuador in July 2010. If you have any questions about our mission, how to become involved with the chapter, or would like to assist in fundraising efforts, please contact us at
