Direct Relief Mission 2016: a luggage full of dreams and hopes!

Hello everyone!

Now it’s official: it’s missing less than a week (only five days)…and finally I’m going to live the experience that I have ever dreamed in my life!  I am getting to start my PULSE adventure in Direct Relief and my mind is full of expectations! I’m so excited since for the next six months my life will change completely and, mainly, I’ll be able to conciliate my personal-working background with a humanitarian project!! It’s amazing!!! Thank to PULSE program and my team that have allowed me to realize this!!

I have decided to participate to GSK Pulse volunteering program because… I’m often reflecting on how many times all of us spend their own time thinking to all that we have not realized, without having taken immediately opportunity.. like this!

We are not often aware that our time in life is too precious to throw it away in stupid ad unuseful things.

“I don’t want to be a passive woman neither to have any regrets but I prefer to spend my time for who really needs: this is the greatest objective of my life to spend my time at best, even if this means to overcome my limits, my fears, and to go out from my personal comfort-zone as well!

Anyway, I’m ready to go and why not?! .. To change positively myself and people I will meet during this adventure, too! I’m going to travel with a luggage full of dreams and hopes and mainly to pursue my mission assigned me with the best purposes!”

Starting from July 8, 2016 I’ll offer my personal contribute as GKS PULSE volunteering employee in Direct Relief, a non-profit, non-sectarian, disaster relief and health assistance organization located in Santa Barbara, California, USA that provides medical goods to institutions and organizations serving those affected by poverty, natural disasters, and civil unrest throughout the United States as well as Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe.

My mission will be to bring my experience in optimizing operations performance and process improvements to help Direct Relief develop a strategy for operational monitoring as well as measuring and sharing key-quality metrics to improve its Quality Management System.

I’m so proud to offer my support in this volunteering experience and I’ll make the best to achieve successfully the goals!!

I take this opportunity to wish all the best to all other Pulse 2016 volunteering participants and I look forward to sharing with you their own experiences on blogging!

Keep in touch soon and Good luck!
