Culturally Immersed

We had an absolutely amazing trip. What made the trip so amazing... our incredible leader. She went out of her way to not only make sure we were equipped to work with our patients and provide them with the highest quality care we were capable of, but also that we learned a lot about the country we went to and about their culture. Overall I would highly highly recommend ISL because of the special people you will meet on your trip. The experience is truly humbling.

How can this program be improved?

Because our trip landed on a holiday break we did not do what most groups do for ISL trips. Rather than setting up a clinic and providing care to people in need, we went and did check-ups on kids in a foster home/orphanage. I wish we would have known this up front, because I just wondered what all our funds we spent on the trip went towards, since we did not set up a pharmacy or spend money on medications for the patients.

Great trip

I can't begin to put into words how, truly incredible this trip was. (oxymoron) It was without a doubt the most rewarding experience of my short life, so far. The people of the communities we visited were so inspiring, and as corny as it sounds, they touched all of our hearts. It brought me tremendous joy to be able to offer medical services to the wonderful people, and i absolutely can't wait to go back.
