Wow. This experience was once-in-a-lifetime. I love it here in Xela, and I am so glad I chose this location and this Organization. The city is vibrant and its people are full of life. The work we got to do at the rehabilitation clinic was very worthwhile and the Spanish lessons were very helpful and fun. I would gladly recommend this program to anyone looking for A Broader View of the world around them.

I felt safe, cared for and respected in my host home. The meals were yummy and nutritious, and although I grew tired of beans, I accept that it is a standard food. I was caught off guard, at first by being told by my host mom that I was not in proper dress code for Guatemala, but I understand that it was for my safety.

ABroaderView's insight:

Abroaderview Donations Guatemala Xela, Elderly Care Center Program. Most of the residents have no other living options. Some have been abandoned by their own family. The home provides these ladies, free of charge, a place to live, meals, clothing, medical treatment and therapy needs. Since most woman in Latin American culture are the back bone of the family, they deserve to live their life with dignity and in a happy environment. *This program can be combined with the medical projects, as volunteers are needed to provide health checks like checking blood pressures, sugar levels, administering medication and physical therapy needs.

Personal Paragraph (ABV Program Testimonial):

When I was in Guatemala, the ABV staff treated me with kindness, compassion and love. I will always be grateful that they were in my life while I was here.

How would you describe your accommodation, meals, security (e: host family, on-site, shared)

They were great! I had a room to myself and the host mom treated me like one of her own. I always felt safe and secure, and was overly fed, which was awesome!

Each day volunteering in the Centro de Salud (Health Center) was unique. Because I speak Spanish and spent the whole day volunteering, the Guatemalan staff at the Centro took a liking to me, and of course me to them, and wanted to make sure I got a variety of new experiences as they knew that I still had one more year of nursing school left and wanted to learn and do as much as I could. Whenever I arrived, I looked forward to seeing the healthcare staff already beginning the day with the Centro filled with patients waiting to be seen. I love the staff because they are all so caring for their people.
