Volunteering is a very rewarding way to see the world and feel like you are doing more than just entertaining yourself. My dentist friend asked me to go along to assist a medical/dental team that was going to work at El Refugio Children's Home in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.
With no official medical skills, I became the "gopher" going for any errands that need to be done.
I admire so much the skills and hard work and unselfish giving that is done worldwide by volunteers. I was privileged to watch them helping many, many children.
