Wonderfull Experience at the Children Hospital in Kathmandu
It was a wonderfull experience this 6 weeks in Kathmandu, a unic experience that I will never forget. I had an opportunitiy to learn first hand about Nepalese family life and to share everything with them, like it was my own family. Be a volunteer in Konti Children Hospital it was a rewarding experience. However in the beginning I felt little frustrated. Because of the language barrier, the diferent practices from what I used to, I felt that I didn’t help as much I desire.
But then I take the opportunity to observe, discover, learn about the health cares, most common diseases in Nepal and listen all the experience and dificulties of the parent’s and all the staff of the hospital.
I start to be able to help slowly according to my capabilities.
After this experience I felt lik the Nepali people did more for me than I did for them. – Rita Gomes da Silva (Portugal)
