Working at Palestine Red Crescent Society
I was in an internship at Palestine Red Crescent Society, where I did administrative work and volunteered in the ambulance service twice a week. My experience of Palestine was generally positive. People were wildly sweet and welcoming, on the other hand, however, there were some cultural things that are hard to get used to.
I learned being in the present and not having to be so busy in everyday life. It is really a mentality I learned from during this stay.
Going to Palestine is an insanely cool experience where you are allowed to experience a completely different culture and some completely different issues than those you struggle with in Denmark.
Support from and cooperation with the Danish House was very good. We got an apartment ready for us already before we arrived, and everything was in control of the internship. It is also nice to have someone to talk to when it comes to the challenges you may encounter in Palestine.
