Terrible experience after I was severely injured....

CBOD (Former Employee) Bangkok (Thailand)

ProsVolunteers are GREAT people to have known

ConsMy program was disorganized: there were too many people sent and not enough for everyone to do. Many people ended up teaching english instead of what they were assigned to do. I was treated terribly after a medical emergency sent me back to the USA. I tried to re-apply again but was laughed at as they 'pitied' what had happened previously.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
