Sama, our volunteer in Peru says, “I live for the chubby cheeks and nutrition education lessons.”
Sama is making a difference and making her dreams come true by spending a year working with vulnerable women and children in Trujillo. She is also becoming fully fluent in Spanish. Sama says, “I have been extremely humbled by this challenging, sometimes frustrating process, that slowly but surely is extremely rewarding. I've really learned to appreciate the bravery it takes people to migrate to a new country with a foreign language.” Sama is finding her volunteer placement to be truly “hands on” with planning, research, budgeting and field work all part of her contribution to the CMMB Peru team.
Regular prenatal visits with a trained medical doctor mean mothers even in remote areas, can start taking good care of their babies before they are even born.
