As a volunteer for the WFH, i have travelled  also to Egypt and Jordan (because I can speak Arabic). Being a volunteer it is something that comes naturally for me, since a teenager , 17, my first experience was 3 months full time at HOSPITAL de Los NIÑOS in Buenos Aires!where the next International Hemophilia Congress will be in July. So as you can see, everything is connected, alive…what I do returns, fructifies, dies and re starts. 

Próxima missão: El Equador!!! Me convidaram para dar 2 workshops (vivências com informações, trabalhos em grupos de profissionais como também com pessoas portadoras de hemofilia e familiares).

Ja fui para Egito e Jordania porque sei falar Arabe…ajuda.

Ser voluntária é um fato que começou na adolescência… minha primeira vivência foram 3 meses tempo integral no Hospital de los Niños em Buenos Aires…nem falava quase o Espanhol! me lembro como se fosse hoje; as voluntárias senhoras disseram para o amigo que me indicou: “Pero que va hacer esta chica?? ni sabe una palabra de Castellano…!” Não é necessário SABER falar sempre…podemos ajudar

brincando, limpando..o corpo fala!
