A Volunteer Perspective, By Claudine Gayle
Working at the Sihanouk Hospital Center of Hope was life changing! Having just finished my medical studies in the UK to be a surgeon, I was excited about the opportunity to volunteer at the hospital. I also had some uncertainties, though, because I had never been to Southeast Asia before. I was unsure of what to expect and also unsure about how I would be received by the people there.
My uncertainties were quickly dismissed, however, once I began to volunteer.
The application is now online to serve as a Summer Americorps Intern for HOPE worldwide.
The HOPE worldwide Summer AmeriCorps Internship is a six week service opportunity. Those accepted to the program will serve in multiple HOPE worldwide programs across the country and will earn 300 hours of service.
On March 27 in Boston, 24 men played basketball for 24 straight hours to raise money for the Sihanouk Hospital Center of HOPE. Doug Arthur, one of the event's participants, sums up the event and thanks the many supporters.
