Hospital Volunteering

Our volunteers have been continuing with their variety of social work programs here in Delhi NCR. Early in the morning, two of our medical volunteers went to work in a government hospital in India to assist in surgeries, distribute medicine, and learn about the health care system here in India, especially for the patients in poverty who cannot afford to visit private hospitals. Other volunteers have been continuing working with the women's empowerment programs, helping at orphanages, and teaching at the slum schools. In the photo, you can see María José walking the children from our orphanage to school: She and the children went together with her friend from Spain, Elisabet, who took the photo! Finally, several of the volunteers are planning to visit Jaipur this weekend too: it's always nice to see when the volunteers can balance their travels abroad with their volunteer work in reaching out to the needy!
