Best Volunteer Reviews 2017

Keep an open mind. Understand that everything you do means something. Never underestimate your ability to have an impact and to make a real difference in someones life. Even if you feel like you didn´t do anything, or that it just wasn´t enough – it was. It is appreciated, someone is grateful. That is what it is all about.

3. What was most personally challenging aspect of this program for you?
The frustration of not being able to provide all of the medical services I could provide for these patients in the US.

4. Any tips for future healthcare volunteers… (clothing, supplies, packing etc)
Come prepared for the emotional strain of not feeling as though you are giving enough. But practically, ask a local about the weather before you travel to pack accordingly.
