Zahnmedizin mal anders
Carolien Bauer
Zusammen mit meiner besten Freundin verbrachte ich 4 Wochen in Njombe in der Zahnstation. Gleich zu Beginn waren wir begeistert von der Herzlichkeit der Menschen. Bei Fragen halfen Sie uns, wo es nur ging. In der Zeit behandelten wir sehr viele Patienten. Wir zogen hauptsächlich Zähne, konnten aber auch ein paar Füllungen legen. Nach den 4 Wochen Arbeit hatten wir noch 2 übrig für ein wenig Urlaub. Am wunderschönen Nyasa-See könnten wir die Seele baumeln lassen und Aktion hatten wir dann am Kilimanjaro, den wir bis zum Gipfel bestiegen haben! Perfekter Aufenthalt!

An Amazing Experience!
Casey Maxwell
This past summer I had the opportunity to volunteer with the CRRU and what a marvelous and unforgettable experience it was! It completely exceeded any expectation that I had going in. It was actually a let down to go back to the "real" world after such an experience with the most wonderful and kind people.

The CRRU team is a dedicated and passionate group of professionals who truly care and value the work that they do and what you bring to the table as a volunteer. Not only do you get to be in a picture perfect location, in the North East of Scotland on the Moray Firth, but you get to experience it with volunteers from all of the world. I honestly don't think I've consistently laughed that hard each day for quite some time!

In addition to the laughter and fun, I can also say that I learned a tremendous amount about cetaceans, the necessity of conservation, driving and maintaining a boat and much, much more. The CRRU is an opportunity that I am grateful that I had the opportunity to do and couldn't recommend it more to others who are interested!
