Malindi is such a great town to be in, the local people are so friendly and it’s wonderful to live right next to a paradise beach! Even though I’m a pre-med student, there were so many opportunities to get involved at the hospital; the doctors introduced and explained patients to me on ward rounds, I got to see some amazing surgeries and learnt so much from the nurses including how to take vital observations. I would love to return when I am more qualified so that I can be of a more direct help to staff and patients. My host family and the friends I made were the best part of my time in Kenya. Everyone was soo welcoming and fed me lots of yummy local food! The in-country volunteer organisation is really supportive and ensures you have nothing to worry about. I wish I could have stayed for longer!
