My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Children of the Americas (COTA), Lexington, KY, USA
I have been a COTA volunteer on the pharmacy team for the last 7 trips. Every year I am amazed at how 125 peiole from different disciplines, backgrounds and regions come together with limited resources in nearly unimaginably difficult working environments to provide exceptional healthcare for the women and children of Guatemala. All of this takes place without rehearsal, without meetings, without manuals and with rookie volunteers in critical roles every year. I have studied organizational theroy for twenty years and I have never seen anything that approaches this level of productivity. I work with amazing champions who are motivated by a greater good and who truly touch the lives and whose lives are forever touched by the indigenous population of Guatemala.
