Project La Merced, Peru: A Beautiful and Unique Volunteer Experience

“My best memories from La Merced involve working with the local children. From teaching them first aid to communication skills, you can see FIMRC’s positive impact every time you engage with the community.” Stephanie Villalta, FIMRC Alumna and Medical Assistant from San Francisco weighs in on her time serving at Project La Merced.

The Unexpected

"It’s a very surreal moment when you get to introduce people to something you are passionate about and then in return see them reciprocate those same feelings." Holden Camp, now a junior at Auburn University, served as a 2017 Summer International Health Fellow in Nicaragua. He recently helped organize another trip; this time to Project Alajuelita in Costa Rica, and with a group of other students from Auburn University.
