Looking back, it has been truly an amazing experience for each one of us. It was an honor to serve a total of 878 patients in this community. Despite the heat of the sun, we pulled through together with team work and an open mind and heart. We were all hands on and focused in being to give the best possible care to our patients. We may have come from different backgrounds but we came together with one purpose and that is to share our hearts to the community of the Aetas. The effort we exerted each day and long distance we have travelled were all repaid with genuine smiles and kind gestures by the community. It was also a pleasant surprise finding family within the team. We got to share a special kind of bond despite the limited time we had spent with each other during the week. We will truly miss this fellowship and we are hopeful that we would be able to cross paths again in the future.
For now, we move forward with a greater appreciation of our blessings and an open heart to serve.
