Review for ASAP (Americans Serving Abroad Projects) , Marcellus, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a senior member of the ASAP team both in experience and age , this third trip to Ghana was as memorable and rewarding are ever. Whether the group is 12 or over 20 in number we are able to touch and be touched by the people we served in Ghana. Everyone , medical and nonmedical , have an important role to play. The experience puts in prospective how blessed we are and the importance of giving back. Looking forward to the 2018 trip !

Review for ASAP (Americans Serving Abroad Projects) , Marcellus, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Having the opportunity to travel with ASAP twice has been just the most wonderful experience. I think 10 minutes into the first informational meeting I was totally sold that this was the group and the mission for me. We were a group of mostly strangers but by the time we came home the friendships were life long. Living ,eating ,riding countless miles in a bus, learning our strengths ,talents was such a gift. Working in a developing country ,learning about a culture totally different requires an open mind ,patience and an acceptance of humanity . Our job involved setting up clinics in remote areas. We never had the same situation two days in a row - setting up the clinic in a school ,under the trees or an unfinished church. The supplies we took varied from trip to trip . Learning to make do is part of the process. Our patients were always thankful we took interest in them and were able to help. My job was dispensing medications and giving a nutrition lesson [on trip #2]. ASAP has the best support in Ghana - our safety is never an issue . I am so looking forward to my third trip in 2017 !
