Review Volunteer Samantha Oberlander in Kathmandu Nepal at the PreMed program

The experience and culture shock was wonderful. The hospital was less busy than expected but I can’t blame people for not getting sick. Speaking with the doctor about cases and observing endoscopy and stitches were very helpful in viewing the healthcare of this country. It showed just how different & similar to world is.

 came here as a leader of a university immersion profgram and have been delighted and impressed with this program and the impact it has on me and my students. It has been wonderful to interact and get to know the kids and staff here and to experience the beauty of Belize.

Review Elisa de la Terre Kathmandu Nepal Woman Support Program

I just want to thank you. I felt amazing and I love all the great job you put together for. 

Review Volunteer Artavia Price Honduras La Ceiba Pre Medical Program

I was excited to come to experience new things. I did have one bad day, but I didn’t let that stop me because so many great things happened after that. I want to be a neonatal doctor and being able to see the birth of two babies was just a driving force for me to never give up and that one day that could be. Like I said, you get what you put in. Now that it is time to leave I take away so many memories and experience that I will cherish forever.

Review Volunteer Alisha Parchment Nepal Kathmandu Woman support program

Nepal is a special place in this world. I have never seen people so happy. It’s a beautiful place; I would hope everyone would get the chances to visit.

Review Volunteer Marisa Napoli Belize Orphanage - University of Dayton

This was an incredible experience. I can only hope that I have helped these kids and the workers as much as they have helped me. Everyone have been loving and kind and I care for them all.

Review Volunteer Christina Sinak Belize orphanage program

Before coming on this trip I did some reading about people like me that participate in trips like this – come for a week and then go back to their ordinary lives. I didn’t want to enter this week with the mindset that I was going to be the one creating change. I wanted to welcome change from the children. I have been amazed by my experienced in Belize – one that is so rare an experience. I have been so overwhelmed by the love and care extended to me on my short stat.

Review Volunteer Chris Von Kaenel Kathmandu Nepal at the Premedical program

I fell in love with Nepal. Kathmandu has a vibrant, fast paced energy; Pokhara was like a touristy resort town on a lake and Nagarkot was simply breathtaking. The food & people both constantly amazed me. I wish the hospital had actual responsibilities for us instead of us just watching most of the surgeries, but even that was great. I missed out on trekking but I plan on doing that if I return.

Review Volunteer Stacy Dybas Honduras La Ceiba Rescue Ambulance program

Spending two weeks in Honduras was a different experience. It allowed me to appreciate everything that we take for granted in the USA. The people of Honduras were also very friendly. The staff at the hospitals were welcoming and grateful for the help we provided.

Review Volunteer Carly Humphrey Peru Cusco Elderly Care center Program (Physical Therapy)

I loved my time in Cusco. This is such a beautiful city and country with such caring residents. Being able to experience physical therapy here was very challenging yet rewarding. The differences in standards of care and lack of direction took some time to get used to, but I learned to enjoy the autonomy and tried to provide the best care to the patients as possible. Also the immersion was extremely beneficial. Unless you are fluent or proficient in Spanish I highly recommend it. I learned so much in just 3 weeks at the language immersion lessons and the teachers were all incredible. Overall I really enjoyed my experience and would love to come back and visit in the future!

Review Volunteer Ana Gomez in Honduras La Ceiba at the Medical program

This volunteering experience at La Ceiba was my first volunteering activity ever and while I am not a doctor or a nurse I wasn't sure I was going to be able to provide help and I ended feeling highly satisfy with my accomplishments. The experience allow me to challenge myself and find creative ways in which I could be of help, even without getting a straight forward tasks from the people at the clinic, clear expectations and a defined role for me to do. I would certainly do it again, perhaps with more time (at least three weeks).  This experience has provided me with personal growth as well as good memories and personal gratification. It also allowed me to meet wonderful people I am sure I will remind in contact with.
