"I'm glad that we were there": Stanford emergency-response team returns home from the Philippines

Time for another (feel-good) video? The SEMPER team that’s been in the Philippines for the last few weeks made it home safely yesterday; in this piece, the group is greeted at the airport by friends and family. “We saw [about] 200 patients a day. It was very difficult – I have to tell you that,” said one of the returnees, later adding, “Our presence actually made them feel good, and they’re very grateful for that. And I’m glad that we were there.”
