As Bridge of Life's Program Director and with my background in international work, I've traveled to many different locations and countries across the globe. However, when I arrived in Jordan with our volunteer team in April, it was the first time I had ever been to this region. And I wasn't sure what to expect when we screened over 1,000 displaced Syrian refugees for chronic diseases.
What I discovered was a people who greeted us with warmth, gratitude and open arms, despite all the conflict and hardships they had been through. Getting the opportunity to screen refugees who no longer have access to basic healthcare services was incredibly rewarding.
Thank you for helping us strengthen healthcare around the world,
Program Director, Bridge of Life
