Volunteers Arrive in Guyana

All 15 members of the Project HOPE volunteer team arrived safely into Georgetown, Guyana on Sunday and Monday. The volunteer doctors and nurses formally introduced themselves to each other through their personal and medical backgrounds.

In addition to introductions, the volunteers prepared for their health education and humanitarian mission by participating in safety briefings and orientation aboard the USS Iwo Jima.

The team was happy to meet each other, and they are very excited to begin working in Guyana and Suriname.

Medical work is scheduled to begin today.
