What Others Say

“This experience was incredibly eye-opening and heartwarming! The setting and accommodations in Chogoria were beautiful and the service was above and beyond. The cultural exchange amongst healthcare workers in the U.S. and healthcare workers in Kenya was exceptional and enlightening….I signed up for this program thinking I was going to be volunteering my time, but instead, I feel like I was given much more than I ever hoped to contribute. I came home feeling re-invigorated about medicine and inspired by the comprehensive approach that Hope Core and MedTreks provide to the community of Chogoria. I gained an indispensable education regarding humanity, communication, and global health.” ~ T.V, Reno
