The June Veterinary Volunteer Trip has just ended. Vet Nurse Yelena Poveda, a native of Russia, commented
"I am back from the jungle to civilization, here in Iquitos, and I'm about to pack my bags and go back to my country tomorrow night. The trip was fantastic! I was very glad to meet with the Peruvian doctor and with my colleagues the vet techs from the Amazon CARES clinic. Together with two vets from South Africa, we made a fantastic team! We worked hard to treat and sterilize animals in Iquitos and in the villages along the rivers. We also had a great time together exploring the jungles and fishing. I think these relationship won't end here!!!
The people in the area where we worked were amazingly friendly and warm, it was a true pleasure to do what we could for them.
