Review for Natural Doctors International, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My gratitude for the opportunity to share time with the people of Ometepe. I brought knowledge and experience, along with an open-mind, to the NDI clinic and received so much more from my Brigade this past April 2014. The journey allowed a collaboration of efforts by professionals and students to provide this community with much needed healthcare services. We listened as each person described daily health challenges and offered our helping hand to bring comfort. Many thanks were offered with smiles, hugs and tears. In addition to the clinic experience, I was enlightened by our evening gatherings to discuss our experiences of the day, as well as, learn more about history, politics, culture and the future of Nicaragua and its people. My experience with the 'home stay' was invaluable to understanding life on the island. I left behind a piece of my heart, but will return to continue the mission that "healthcare is a human right". I recommend this trip to anyone interested in being a part of this global effort. Much appreciation to Dr. Farr and his wife Laura for leading our Brigade.
