My friends and I (student nurses) would love to gain some experience volunteering in South America for a couple of weeks during our break. But it seems that all the volunteer organisations charge you big bucks! I understand there are costs associated with us going there but does anyone have any experience with or know any companies/organisations that are a little cheaper? And where did you go in South America? We would love to go, and help out where we can, even as student nurses, as we are really passionate about helping.
