Volunteer Costa Rica: I had a fantastic experience all the way around with ABV. From the time I inquired about their programs, to almost the day before I left to come to Costa Rica, ABV was continually in touch with me making sure everything was arranged, taken care of, answered any questions I had. ABV is a very professional organization and one I would volunteer with again.
Volunteer Peru: It has been an interesting experience volunteering in Cusco. It changed my perspective as to how things are done in another country. I found the dentists at the hospital to be quite skillful with the limited resources.
Volunteer Nepal: Staffs at dental hospital were so welcoming and kind. Bought us food and drinks, introduced us to many good food and phrases to interact with the patients. Did extractions, pulpectomy, fillings, etc. Great if I could have done more but sadly no, due to language barrier. If stayed longer, could have done more. I only stayed for a week.
Volunteer Chile: My local coordinator, Vilma was amazing. She made sure we had things to do on our days off. I didn’t really feel the need to ask her for any assistance, but I was confident that if I needed anything that I could depend on her.
Volunteer Zambia: This was my second trip with ABV. Africa was an extremely different place (than Peru). However, it was lovely to see the contrast. I had a hard time adapting to the laid back attitude by the locals, but by the end of my time there it didn’t even phase me.
