As a nurse, I had the opportunity to help in the Health Center, where i could learn and discover the cultural differences and their impact in peoples health.
In the children's program with the Huancayo kids I was able to discuss with them about various topics like health, higiene, relationships... with their unique point of view as a feedback. If you feel creative and full of ideas its an ideal proyect to help with!
Finally, I could spend some days with the Ashaninka native community, an experience which inspired me to continue with this kind of social work and coming back, thanks Vero!!!
