May 2017 - Camille Ngo

While all of our brigaders went above and beyond the call of duty, we want to recognize the top member of our Honduras brigade: Camille Ngo (a.k.a Camila)!

3 words that describe her are warmth, diligence, and passion!

Camille’s enthusiasm to serve others permeated the entire brigade! She would constantly ensure the pharmacy was running smoothly and even gently inquired that the pharmacist had eaten. She also enjoyed playing soccer with the kids as well as interacting with them in Spanish!

Camille’s diligence in serving others did not stop there. She tirelessly worked on the public health latrines, rarely taking a break, and her knack for building was impressive! Whether it was learning how to hammer a door together or sawing through pieces of wood, Camille truly had the curiosity to learn. She would also carry buckets of cement on her own and by the end of the day her face would be the same shade of Cougar Red! She never complained about being exhausted and even used her extra time to teach English words to the construction workers. And as she was saying her goodbyes to the family, she donated her shoes and hat to them.

Even when were not working, Camille always took the time to meet the compound workers, translators, and other brigaders.

Camille aspires to be an occupational therapist, and we know her love for helping others will truly make her shine. We wish you the best in all that you do and thank you for the amazing job you did!
