Yesterday was another meaningful day volunteering in the Philippines. Our nurses assisted with the care of a 29-week old baby/premature and requiring an IV. A lot of training and discussions on ethical decisions occurred. The stress debriefing was very well received by the hospital staff and was very timely. It caused some intense emotions and was greatly appreciated.
A family who is from the Tapaz and now living in San Diego is providing a Christmas party for 250 local children. They are so appreciative of what Project HOPE is bringing to the community that they have invited the volunteers to enjoy the party.
