Breakaway 2011

Last week, for the second year in a row, Hospitals of Hope hosted a volunteer team from Wheaton College over their spring break. This group – of all girls this year – spent the week shadowing doctors in the Wichita area, scraping rust spots on the exterior of containers being converted into clinics, inventorying medical supplies, and exploring Wichita. The girls also had the chance to volunteer with His Helping Hands and the Lord's Diner.

The Wichita community did a great job helping us to welcome the Wheaton team, and we'd especially like to thank Youth Horizons, for providing the girls with a place to stay, and all of the medical professionals who went out of their way to provide them with a wonderful shadowing experience.

The girls did a great job, and we loved having them. Thanks, ladies, for giving up your spring break for us!
