Our Medical Volunteer Program focuses on supporting different local clinics. The health problems faced by these care centres, often overcrowded due to lack of infrastructure, are sometimes caused by a lack of resources or basic health information.
With the help of volunteers, we aim to reach a larger population and have greater contact with the community through family visits, outreach work and public campaigns. Volunteers will be involved in helping to promote and maintain the effective, warm and efficient services provided by the Health Centre.
For certified doctors/nurses: we can develop specific roles and tasks depending on the skills and experience of each volunteer and the needs of the clinics, health clinics and local communities.
Minimum Stay: 2 weeks.
