2 Weeks Volunteering in the "Centro de Miembros Artificiales"

by Claire
(Toulouse, France)

I had an amazing time volunteering in the "Centro de Miembros Artificiales" in La Paz, because it's a small structure (2 people working full time there, the director, and the volunteers). People working there are so nice, they had time and patience to answer any questions I had. I wanted to learn spanish so they helped me guessing what I was trying to say, and the director, Ivonne, wich is an english teacher, helped me too when I could not make me understandable :) I dit not know nothing about prothesis but still they received me with open arms and in 2 weeks I could learn a lot. I was impressed by the useful and great work they produce in this small center. Life was very convenient there because I rented a nice room at a cheap price within one minute walking distance from the center. And there is plenty of public transportation to the city center. I am very happy about this experience and that I met people so generous. I will never forget this example.

It's so important when volunteers share their stories and experiences. It motivates others to do so. Really happy you took the time to share. Thank you for doing that :D
