Sameer has made another suitcase a part of his most recent trip to India, saying “Donating a suitcase allows me to connect on a grass roots level with locals who make a difference every day – the least I can do is occasionally support them” Read more about his trip 🙂 …
“My first few days in India was definitely a sensory overload. I was overwhelmed at first and found everything to be an adventure, but after day 3ish, I was settling in a lot better.
The clinic I went to was called Bombay Teen Challenge – which helped women and children in the red light district. The day I went, they actually brought in foreign doctors and put up a make shift clinic to help others in the community. I have attached photos but it was tough to get more as we were in a more or less no photo area.
The clinic itself was quite tiny but was known in the community. They also provided a free 24h ambulance service for those in need. That day i spent most of my time across the street in the make shift clinic which had a table to check people in, then about 5-6 bed sheet rooms to see and treat patients individually.
I think I mentioned in on my last trip. I am so blessed to be traveling – but I also want to ensure that I get a local flavour and feel for the places I visit. Donating a suitcase allows me to connect on a grass roots level with locals who make a difference every day – the least I can do is occasionally support them.
Thanks for doing what you do to make this possible.
