"The Honduran people are so appreciative and loving of every single individual that comes down to serve them," explains Chauhan. "Despite the circumstances that they live in, they see the positive sides of life and live each day to their fullest. It's also rewarding to see the empowerment of the volunteers who provide the services through Global Brigades. We really believe that each volunteer can do so much and make the quality of life better in these communities."
This is the second year AthletiCo employees have been involved with Global Medical Brigades, nearly doubling the number of AthletiCo volunteers from 2008. Melissa Marek-Piedra, AthletiCo's Operations Assistant, volunteered this year and found her experience in Honduras humbling.
"When I close my eyes today I see the faces of the beautiful people, both the native Hondurans and the participants from the U.S. who generously gave of their time and effort to help the people of Honduras."
