Elizabeth’s Experience with Rustic Pathways

I went to the Dominican Republic where I first visited a variety of hospitals and clinics which varied in funding and purpose. I then visited the most underprivileged communities and educated those living there on ways they can avoid many diseases such as STDs and diseases transmitted by mosquitos such as dengue and malaria. The most fulfilling experience I had was when I spent a week helping cement the floors of homes. Towards the end of the experience, my group set up a free clinic where we measured babies to make sure they were healthy. We then proceded to give mothers and their children the vitamins they were lacking. This was a very eye-opening experience where I was able to compare their lifestyle to my own.
