Life is so fragile

Life is so fragile and should be appreciated on a daily basis for tomorrow is not promised to anyone. This year alone the world has witnessed so many tragedies from the Ebola Plague devastating West Africa healthcare system; the shooting of students at a Kenya University; multiple earthquakes and aftershocks shaking Nepal back to the "stone-age"; homeless refugees and immigrates fleeing oppression for a better way of life, and the daily struggle for over 1 billion people to have clean water.  

There are many of us that are in a position to help others in need. What an amazing gift of Volunteering for a cause that will make a difference in the life of another human being. 

The clothing left on the bed after our patient had died.

While we were in Africa, we were introduced a 20-year-old female on the ward. She was remitted to the hospital a few days prior. Upon questioning her, she spoke of how she would attend University this semester.  On the following day, we were informed that she had died. Her demise, of someone with so much hope and character, was extremely difficult on our team.   However, we do understand the limitations and potential complications of rendering medicine in "third world" areas.  This medical mission elevated Volunteers4Humanity passion to make a difference.   
Think about donating to our nonprofit organization.
