”As nursing students, we learned so much with the projects! It's unbelievable that as a group we helped over 1,000 Peruvians. The project was more then I could have ever imagined! I came back a more confident nursing student because of the IVHQ program. Thank you! Our host family was outstanding. Very accommodating. Meals were great and the housing that we stayed in was more then what was excepted. I couldn't say more amazing things about this program. So thankful that there are programs like this. It was an eye opening experience and I am so thankful for it.”
