Jill Caporiccio – RN from Boston Massachusetts, USA.

In 2007, Jill Caporiccio took time off her work as a nurse in Massachusetts in the United States to volunteer in Africa with us.
She volunteered in a local hospital and she was a big help to the hospital and the local nurses. Jill Caporiccio volunteered in Ghana, Africa with us for four months. She will readily be available to cover shift for other nurses, tried local food, adapted greatly to the culture and was a cheerful, friendly and kind person who won the heart of the local nurses, people in the community she lived and particularly all the staff of our organization in our then small office. She willingly accepted rotation to any department that needed her service and never missed work. Worth noting that Jill was volunteering in Africa, there was no fee or remuneration in return. Even when paid nurses found excuses to miss work, Jill who was unpaid was ready and available to cover so the people who came to the hospital could receive healthcare. During her stay, Jill took time to work in orphanage and spent time playing with the children of the orphanage. Jill Caporiccio, after volunteering with us has gone on to volunteer her services to other missions including multiple trips to Haiti since the devastating earthquake.

More reasons why nurses ranked #1 in honesty & ethics for 14 consecutive years: Nurses volunteer in Africa!

Nurses and student nurses make up the largest category of our volunteers in Africa, almost half! Nurses sacrifice their hard earned money and hard earned holiday to volunteer in Africa with us. When nurses volunteer in Africa, they serve in poor communities where people cannot afford healthcare, where many local nurses will not even accept an appointment to work. The nurses work alongside local nurses and as notable of them, patiently impart their skills to the local nurses and this improve local health delivery a lot! When people are struggling to make time to spend the holidays with family, nurses head into the cold for a night-shift to take care of the sick. They shall miss the holidays but they are not crying at work, they are bringing smiles to the faces of their clients even when they have left their loved ones at home, even when they will rather be at home. Nurses Rock!!!! To say thank you to these noble people, each day, we will salute the nurses who have sacrificed to volunteer in Africa with us and tell you their story from our lenses and our reports. We honor all nurses because nurses volunteer in Africa to help us save lots of lives.
