    Great Medical Volunteering Experience in Argentina

    I enjoyed the program very much, and the staff here has been very accommodating and helpful. Additionally, I learned a lot about the Argentinean health system and functions. Spanish lessons were great. The hospital was a bit difficult in the beginning because we could not understand a lot. I improved a lot over the 4 weeks of my stay. I really loved the host mom. She was so sweet and kind! Everything was greatly arranged and if you had any problems you could always talk to the members from Global Crossroad. They are doing a wonderful job
