FIMRC's Project Kodaikanal, located in the scenic mountains of southern India, creates better health services and educational opportunities for the community through the operation of a rural clinic, extensive outreach efforts, and providing support to local hospitals and creches (day care centers).
Volunteers maintain important roles in the clinic through assisting with intake and pharmacy operations. Volunteers also have the opportunity to observe medical staff in our clinic and local hospitals, allowing for a unique glimpse into the delivery of care in the area. Outside FIMRC's clinic, volunteers accompany staff during home visits, travel to creche partners to assist with nutrition supplementation and well child checks, as well as deliver health based talks on topics such as vaccinations and basic sanitation.
Over the course of your trip you'll receive an unfiltered experience in health care field work abroad, and learn about the tremendous impact that even one person can have!
