1- How was the local ABV Coordinator and the support provided in-country?
They seemed to do their job successfully.  Stuck to plans, kept us informed and made sure we were safe.

2- What was the most surprising thing you experienced?
I had expected to see more poverty, despite the poverty that does exist.

3- What was most difficult to experience?
The most difficult was sometimes feeling like I could do more to help but was limited.

4- Any tips for future volunteers… (clothing, travel, personal items, donations)
Open mind because often times thing don’t go according to plan.  An extra jacket, money for giving – you will want to give.
