Adjusting to a new country, culture, and lifestyle is not easy for anyone, even field staff! Rebecca Kerr began working with FIMRC in December of 2016 at Project Cavite in the Philippines. She slowly transitioned into becoming the new FOM, and officially took over in January! Her first couple months have been exciting, tiring, and overall a great start to furthering FIMRC's efforts in the Philippines.
Volunteer Brittany Brooks dedicated three months to Project Bududa during the summer and fall of 2016. She was a complete joy to have on site, helping with whatever possible and connecting with staff and the community. She shares her story of experiencing the ups and downs of being on site, and how her experience has impacted her life.
During January, Madeleine and Eric took a side trip to visit Project Limón in Nicaragua. Madeleine is the Global Innovations Manager at HQ in Philadelphia, and Eric is her husband currently attending Temple's DPT Program. Below you can read about their experience as newbies to the FIMRC family abroad!
