Do Palliative Care in Your Setting

“When asked ‘What experience had the deepest impact on you during your trip to Sierra Leone,’ the answer for me and the other Hosparus volunteers is simply ‘the people.’ From city dwellers to rural villagers, professionals to panhandlers, school children to shop owners… the respect and resiliency of these friendly and peaceful people never ceased to amaze us.”
