What do our past volunteers say?

"We had such an amazing time! The people were fantastic and very accommodating. We got to volunteer at a local hospital as well as a clinic where we were able to help the community by providing a free medical screening which was very rewarding. We met some of the nicest people and were able to experience the culture and have lots of adventures. I would absolutely recommend it!”McKenna Peck, Medical Project Tanzania
