What’s it like traveling to Haiti with a volunteer medical team? Here’s how one team member described her trip in “sound bites.”
1. It was so good and so much harder than I thought it would be.
2. I felt a deep sense of purpose and autonomy.
3. My biggest fear going into the trip was connecting with the team, and my biggest joy in coming out of the trip was connecting with the team.
4. We were so well loved by the Haitians who cared for us in the clinic.
