What I Will Be Doing
Our volunteers will be offering medical clinics and health education classes and engaging in community service projects for the area. We will be working with local physicians to provide primary health care for all ages. The health education classes will cover general hygiene, disease prevention, infant care, CPR, and first-aid training. The classes will be open to the public and health officials in the area. We are not completely set in details for community service.
No matter where we end up, we are always excited to be helping out. However, we are particularly looking forward to working in Marrakech, Morocco—somewhere we haven’t been before. We are grateful to have the opportunity to help to improve the lives of others and the well-being of communities!
A Little About Lorena Palacios
I originally trained as a lawyer and worked as an environmental attorney. Afterwards, I got my masters in European studies and worked in various jobs in the climate change and project management fields. Along the way, I have gotten certification as a yoga teacher and wine expert.
