Multivitamins and Love: Tales from the Medical Camp at Prasanthi Nilayam
Volume 2 Issue 18 Oct 2004 Window to Sai Seva

Volunteering at the medical camp had a tremendous impact on me. Toward the end of my trip, I realized I had gained as much from the experience as the patients had from the excellent care they received. I discovered I had more self-discipline and patience than I thought. I developed a strong sense of teamwork, as well as a new set of pharmaceutical skills. But most of all, I learned how very fortunate and blessed I was. Simple things like clean water, shoes, and decent medical care, which I take for granted in America, are not always available in India. Living, working, and interacting with all kinds of people allowed me not only to experience the rich tapestry of humanity but to see how very much we are all alike.

It is up to all of us to do everything we can to make this world a better place. Our contribution does not have to be grand.
