I am still digesting my experience at SACH, but I will attempt to describe my two-week medical internship in a concise post. The first thing I heard was laughter as I walked through the gates and into a bustling scene at the Children’s Home. Once inside, I was met by a smiling Delice who invited…

I mean this literally when I say that I had no idea what to expect before arriving at SACH in mid-May. I had just finished finals for my first year of medical school and then I left for Israel the next day. Because of this, I hadn’t been able to appropriately plan for my journey,…
