Highly recommend this program to the nursing or medical student. There are lots of opportunities to observe doctors and nurses and ask them questions. We found this program to be less useful for certified professions. If you are a certified professional, make sure you check out the exact details of how you will be volunteering first.
The host, Mama Alice, is fantastic! She will help you to get anything done. It is very useful to have her help in times of miscommunication. She definitely makes you feel safe and a part of her family! We stayed with other volunteers and the occasional tourist.
