A humbling and educational experience

I’ve recently completed a placement on the Healthcare and Medical project in Guatemala with Love Volunteers and their local team. Some of my duties have included assisting in nutritional workshops in local schools, making house calls with the doctor to pregnant and handicapped women in the village, and assisting during consultations at the health clinic /outpost. Attached are three photos taken while working alongside with a local medical student in the villages of Xeatzán Bajo and Chichoy Alto. It has a been very much a humbling and educational experience, and I highly recommend it to anyone!
