“Growing up, I always did a lot of volunteer work, and in high school, I did a lot of work with kids,” medical records volunteer Lauren said. “My husband and I are foster parents, so kids especially have a very special place in my heart.”

In this episode, you’ll meet two U.S. volunteers and learn what it’s like to participate on one of our missions in both medical and nonmedical roles. Mary, a volunteer post-anesthesia care unit nurse, and Lauren discuss what inspired them to join our global family to provide safe, free safe surgery to children around the world and why they’re so eager to come back and do it again.
