AND INTERNS REFLECTIONS
definitely a worthwhile & unforgettable experience that I would recommend
to anyone considering doing the project. Volunteers should not worry about
their safety here as PSD Nepal could not have helped more with ensuring
we would not be in danger. Their organizational skills were fantastic
and they went out of their way to help whenever they could.

Volunteering here has been an amazing experience and I would definitely
recommend it to anyone. One of the best parts of the trip was staying
with a Nepalese family and from the medical parts of view it was really
interesting for us to see how different the disease burden and health
care system are here than at home. Lastly, PSD are a brilliant help to
my volunteering here and I couldn’t have seen so much of Nepal without

I have had an amazing memorable experience during this Easter program.
PSD have been fantastic in organizing everything and looking after us
so well. It is definitely because or them that our program has been so
good. In Malekhu hospital we got to see so much and gain valuable clinical
experience that will definitely be useful in my last few years studying
medicine at university. Its been fantastic to see so much of Nepal –
beautiful country. Definitely take the opportunity to do everything PSD
offers you the chance to do – rafting, Chitwan National Park, Pokhara,
Paragliding and mountain flight.

It is one thing to visit a country as a tourist but quite another
to live as a visitor. You not only get to see all the usual sights and
attractions, but gain an understanding of the people and culture. You
will be amazed at how warm and hospital everyone is. It is a great chance
to witness the differences between ”western medicine” and
the problems faced by developing countries. You will learn so much…

Volunteering in Nepal was one of the most rewarding things I have
done. Nepal was fantastic and a massive cultural shock, but in a good
way. We lived with a Nepali family while being here and that was definitely
the best way to see proper Nepal. I would recommend Nepal to anyone, there
is so much to do and see.

Nepal is an incredibly beautiful country with a unique culture;
living and working in a small community can be hard but its rewarding
and a great way to learn about Nepal. I found that the projects were able
to achieve highly tangible ends mainly as a result of the careful consultation
of the community by PSD before our arrival and the high degree of local
participation without which our job would have been made impossible. Furthermore
I never felt threatened on placement and thanks PSD for always putting
our safety first.

Being a volunteer in Nepal has been one of the most exciting and
most enlightening experiences I have ever had. It’s the one thing
to study the developing nations of the world at school or university;
it’s an entirely different experience to actually live within one
for a few months. This experience has taught me a lot about my own capabilities
and I don’t regret a second of my time spent here.

A fabulous country with some of the most beautiful landscapes and
welcoming people in the world…I would unhesitating recommend PSD
as a volunteering organization, they are exceptionally competent, helpful
and welcoming; and you will come away from your project feeling that you
have had a unique and truly productive experience.
– Paddy Curry
I would really recommend PSD as an organization to volunteer with
and Nepal as an amazing, welcoming, fascinating country to come to. A
really rewarding time feeling part of the community. Even when there is
a language barrier, it’s really possible and great fun to communicate
and work with local people and children.
