Peace Corps bureaucracy leaves some volunteers stranded with thousands of dollars in medical debt

In a report by FairWarning it has been found that despite their service to the Peace Corps organization, some volunteers are left stranded with thousands of dollars in medical bills after being hurt or becoming sick while completing their assignments.

"The program’s flawed management was underscored by a Government Accountability Office report issued in November. The assessment was required by the Kate Puzey Peace Corps Volunteer Protection Act of 2011, named after a volunteer who was murdered while working in the West African nation of Benin."
