Clinic Day One and Two
What and amazing two days in Bueng Kan Thailand! On day one we helped over 900 people and day two we helped 1211 people! We have an amazing team with members from USA, Canada, Israel, Latvia, Italy, South Africa, Hungary and China. We had a couple of memorable moments including one from Dr. Dana Kindberg, who was able to give her mother's glasses to a young girl. And Happy Birthday to Andreas from Hungary, who was happy to celebrate his birthday without ice and snow. We also had many hugs of thanks and lots of the famous Thai smiles!

Life Changing, I had so many expectations and the few days I have been here have exceeded them. Today I had that moment... I dispensed reading glasses to a woman who was over 80 and it was her first and she started speaking and I asked the volunteer what she was saying. She was wishing me good luck in my life and hugged and kissed me and she became so emotional and started crying and I realised it was me needing to Thank her for allowing me the opportunity, it was emotional for me and humbling. I have made amazing bonds and friendships with my new Family members. Heres to the next awesome Clinic days ahead.
