Loc's adventure in PE

I think the best experience is exploring the city and getting to know the students here. I actually love everything about this program. I loved getting to meet the kids and spending time with them. Even though it was for a short time i think I was able to connect with them alot.

Kristi's adventure in Port Elizabeth

As i am not used to kids this was definitely a learning experience for me. I got to know all the children and adults at the Door of Hope Orphanage and make unique connections. I enjoyed spending time with the kids and helping the mamas out. At the volunteer house everyone was very nice as well. I also enjoyed all of Samantha's help as well as John for the city tour and helping us book for Addo National Elephant Park.

First time further away from home more than 9000km

The whole two weeks was unforgettable, living together with a bunch of dutch girls, volunteering at the door of hope. Have time off to see the country and do crazy stuff like bungee jumping. getting to know all these lovely people.

Experiencing happiness in the smallest of things

We had the freedom to play what we wanted with the children. We painted, blew bubbles, played games. Other than Door of Hope we also had the chance to participate in other projects such as Izizwe. the variability during our short stay was great.

Nursing to the Max

I have learned so much more about nursing and how to deal with patients. I have gained some practical experience which I feel is necessary in a foreign country especially South Africa being the wonderful place that it is.
