Words from a volunteer…
I have been home for only a week and I am missing the lodge, staff, volunteers and the children more than I ever imagined.
This was the first time doing anything like this and I wasn’t disappointed – my only regrets are that I only went for two weeks and I wish I had done it sooner! I will defiantly be returning again…. I would love this to be longer maybe even a year.
I did build up a really strong bond with a child called Jeffery (7 years old) he had a very nasty cut on the heel, this had resulted on a large chunk taken out and become infected.
I treated it every day for the last week I was there – he even started to bring his friends with small cuts and grazes…I had a daily clinic going!!!
