    Review this program
    I did learned so much during my stay in Nepal. While I volunteered at the hospital, I was very fortunate to have been able to observe 5 surgeries but also had the chance to interact with the wonderful doctors and nurses. I was also able to perform several ECG’s and sit in couple endoscopies. The nurses were so kind; they taught me how to change wounds. My host family was wonderful. They helped me got adjusted to the different culture. I will always remember them and all the people I have met, learning about the Nepalese people is fascinating and I personally feel that I did learn a lot and grewn as a person. I am so glad that I chose a broader view and Nepal as the country to volunteer at.
    This trip was an unforgettable one!
