Volunteers Work Through Sun and Rain

One of first days in Panama and Project HOPE volunteers got to expereince another lesson in the extremes of mother nature.

“Yo ho! Let it pour!” and it did! We had a beautiful hot sweaty day until it was time to get on the LCU to go to the ship, and it was a typical tropical downpour! It literally started to pour when we were loading on to the LCU to return to the ship, and it poured the whole time. Most people were only concerned about their electronics i.e. my camera and computer, because it was too much of a downpour to even think about staying dry! As the commander says, “It is a chance to show character!”

I just wanted to pass the soap and shampoo! We could have showered and laundered our clothes at the same time!
