I’ve always loved to travel, and as soon as I heard about Dental Health Without Borders, I knew I was going.
The idea of traveling and making a huge difference for some of the world’s poorest people was the perfect combination.
I was surprised at how cool the kids were. Many silent tears were shed, and most of the kids hugged their teddy bears and soldiered through both pain and heartache.
One of my most vivid memories,was walking down the street, when an older lady suddenly shouted at us. We got a little scared at first, but our interpreters translated what she was saying for us, and it turned out she was blessing us and spreading the good news about our deeds and how we helped get rid of her pain.
My first trip impressed me deeply, and I hope to repeat the experience and help even more people.
