During the colder seasons the accommodation was a bit cold. perhaps warmer blankets during these periods?
Perhaps clarification of the volunteers purpose at the Fondazione Massimo Leone site on day one of the project. Because there was not so many english speakers there to assist with this. But for me this was not a hindrance to the project.

I think that there is not much improvement necessary, the program works very well and the support for the volunteers is excellent!

Letting volunteers opt-out of food plan or pay as-needed; a huge part of the culture is eating in the piazza with locals!

I agree with Nicole's comment about the meals--food in Naples is delicious and cheap, so I would've liked to have been able to eat on my own more, instead of feeling like I had to eat the provided meals since I'd already paid for them. But it's probably for the best that I didn't eat pizza fritta (fried pizza) any more than I did! :-)

Please donate more gloves, hand sanitizers and disposable bed pads because the clinic needs them desperately. The doctors need to protect themselves so that they can continue providing care to others.
