Review for Child Family Health International, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I volunteered in Cape Town, South Africa with the healthcare challenges program. I had an amazing four weeks and actually did not want to come home. First of all Cape Town is a great city to be in and has such stark contrasts that you see not only in the hospital but daily. Second, CFHI was a great group to volunteer with. Everything was very organized from the pickups to the local coordinators, Avril and Marion. The hospital we volunteered at serviced the townships so the patient population had many cases of TB, HIV/AID's and violence such as stabbed hearts. My homestay family was amazing and I actually enjoyed spending most of my time with them rather than various tourist activites.
