Anjo from The Netherlands

Published on 26 June 2018 at 14:39

My name is Anjo van den Brink and at this moment I am 27 years old. From the start of 2017 I spend 11 weeks at Amecet. Since I was young I had the desire to mean something in Africa. Through the grapevine I heard about Amecet. A place where I could put my love, time, and energy in the baby’s, toddler, and children. As a person, but also as a nurse. I worked with elderly at that time and had no experience with baby’s. But that didn’t matter. The basics I learned in school and in my work are worth a lot. My job here was the same as the caretaker: feeding the baby’s, changing diapers, help the toddlers eat, cuddle and play with the kids. But as a nurse I helped with the NG tube, giving (IV) medication and more. First I was kind of nervous because I had no experience with those thing. But there was always somebody there to help me. Like the nurses, Els, the next door clinic and otherwise a text to The Netherlands. I hope someday to return to Amecet. Especially now while I am in college becoming a nurse in neonatal. I will have a load of knowledge to bring. If you want to know more about my time at Amecet, you are always welcome to send me an email: I liked to be in contact with somebody who was in amecet before. That way I knew what to expect and ask some practical questions. :)
