Volunteers at St, Bernard's Hanga Abbey Dispensary

St. Bernard's Hanga Abbey dispensary has always been staffed by volunteers from many parts of the world. It is a joy for our understaffed dispensary to have extra hands to help patients at the dispensary. This year, 2012, we have had four volunteers working at the dispensary. David Andrew from Oregon Institute of Technology in Oregon, USA, worked there from July to September. A man with great enthusiasm radiated his zeal to all the workers at the dispensary. From Italy were two volunteers who worked for a month or so. These were Michelle Grandi and Chiara. Another volunteer from Germany, a farmacist, Jana Kobbing, also lended her hands at the dispensary. The abbey is always happy and welcomes volunteers who can stay at the abbey for free accommodation and meals as they do their volunteering work. Our gratitude to all our vulunteers and we welcome any one who is eager to help.
