USFOL volunteers at Betesda Nursing Home

Six female volunteers from the U.S. Forward Operating Location spent several hours at Betesda Nursing Home in Betesda, Curacao, July 1, 2014. The volunteers offered the female residents a relaxing morning of manicures and spoke to the residents about life, family and culture, bringing the warmth of friendship directly to elders with one-on-one interaction. This informal volunteer partnership with Betesda helps emphasize a continuum of care for the Curacao senior community. Volunteers from the US FOL often donate time and resources to various areas and programs on the island, in order to express appreciation for the wonderful hospitality received from the citizens of Curacao.
