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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a participant of CFHI and am now one of their program guide´s in Oaxaca, Mexico. I am very impressed with all aspects of the organization as they are significantly improving the care of underserved communities in various manners, economically and healthcare to name a few. In addition to serving these communities, students are getting a great deal of clinical experience, learning the host language, broading their horizons by being in a foreign environment, and learning about different healthcare systems. All in all, CFHI provides a very enriching experience for its students and focusses on improving the quality of health care for communities that need it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

amongst the local community and the students involved. The host families are always thrilled to have students as we continue to improve their economic status and lifestyle. at a particular clinical sight, CRIT, the patients love having new faces around and help comfort the children during therapy. The students come out of this program with a different view of health and serving communities and have many stories to share.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

become part of a completely different community and enjoying it to the extent of feeling at home here. I have become close to the coordinators, medical professionals and several locals and feel as though I could come back and have a home here whenever I would like. The community is very friendly and welcoming and if you are proactive with them, you will get a lot in return, as I did.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

enthusiastic, patient, loving and really made us feel comfortable in their country.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand its program sights to more countries, as there are hundreds of those in need and would love to have an organization like CFHI help out

Ways to make it better...

when I was a student of CFHI, I would have liked more public health experience or working in an area of psychology. Now that I am a guide, I know there are options available to participate in such clinics, however I was unaware of them at the time.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & I have assisted in several clinical rotations working one on one with several patients and in a group setting doing public healthcare.
