I've been to Nepal for 4 weeks working in Shahid Memorial Hospital.
The experience was very formative. I was unlucky because I've been there during the longest local festival so in the hospital there were less patients than usual, but still I found something to do. This experience gave me the opportunity to assist some operations I would never be able to assist in my counttry untill the last years of my studies.
I have learnt that if you want to do something it 's just up to you: be openmind, kind and available to do every kind of things and you'll be sutisfied.
I've also learnt that sometimes just talking with local people can give you and teach you more than actually doing.

After two volunteering in Peru, I am very pleased with IFRE. They were very accommodating and helped me plan every detail of my trip. I volunteered at an orphanage, and had an amazing experience! I made life long connections and wish that I could go back already. I would recommend IFRE to anyone.

My experience in Sri Lanka has been very good. I had an amazing time during my time as a volunteer. I was helping with kids in the orphanage in Galle and I am so glad I did that. It is an incredible experience which changed my viewpoint on many things in life.

In relation to company I went through, I can only say positive things about them..especially my coordinator in Sri Lanka - Michael. He is so great. He was very helpful, he was taking care of me as I was one of his children... he made my stay brilliant and I can only recommend being volunteer in Sri Lanka.

Hello

I am Vanessa and I am from France. I am doing a volunteer program in srilanka . I have picked the teaching Buddhist monks program . I am staying at Michael's family house in Mahamodara , Michael is a very kind person and always helpful if you need anything he will help you , his house is really nice, comfortable and clean . His wife is a very good chef, you will be happy to eat her cuisine. Overall i am very grateful to have met Michael and his family, I could not thank them enough for having me over and make my stay enjoyable.

If you want to volunteer in the future I would recommend to do the teaching Buddhist monks program , it is very interesting, and the Buddhism culture will keep you on your toes . People in srilanka are so nice, polite and very kind . I have learnt a lot during my stay and I feel really rich inside . What a beautiful experience!

In the end I will definitely come back to Srilanka to travel around the country and of course to visit Michael and his family .
