Hi Team Ecuador
I’d like to share a few suggestions about your health and well being during our upcoming
trip. The team has some common over the counter meds and first aid supplies for
routine minor illnesses and accidents. I am sure you can appreciate that we cannot
predict or carry everything that 88 folks might need for 8 days.
With long travel, change of diet, and working @ 9000 ft above sea level you may
experience some physiologic changes. One of the more common illnesses that we see
is an allergic or head stuffiness kind of discomfort and another is constipation.
Abundant drinking water will be provided and hydration is THE best way to help
minimize all the potential discomforts, but for those things that need extra help may I
• If you know that you have migraine headaches, please bring what you usually
take for same.
• If you routinely need some kind of digestive aid, please bring what you usually
take. Chances are, we won’t have the exact med you are accustomed to.
• Ladies, bring whatever feminine products you normally use, even if you don’t
expect to need it this particular week. We DO NOT stock these.
• Contact Lens wearers: please bring cleaning and wetting solution and a case.
We do have some limited supplies. NOTE: you can bring large containers in a
separate zip loc thru security of contac lens solutions as they are considered
medicinal. I have personally done this successfully to and from Ecuador.
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus,
