My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Vida Volunteer, Arlington, VA, USA
This past June, I had the incredible opportunity to be a part of Vida in Guatemala. I was skeptical and didn't know what to expect before the trip, and I wondered whether it would be worth it. After a whirlwind 10 days volunteering at the clinics, I not only learned more about medicine and patient care, but I also grew a lot as a person. Vida gave me the chance to see, first hand, how helping people and giving your time and resources can create a significant impact on the world. The staff was friendly and welcoming, and they never hesitated to answer questions and assist us in any way they could. They made sure that we had all we needed to better provide aid to patients. Recreational days seamlessly weaved into the trip in a way that created a nice balance between volunteering and experiencing the beautiful country of Guatemala. Overall, I am glad that I signed up to be a part of Vida and I truly believe that it was a trip of a lifetime, worth every penny.
