Review

I had an amazing experience volunteering with IVHQ in the Delhi slum clinic. I was at the clinic for 2 weeks and wish that I had have planned to stay for longer. The slum clinic is a very hands on experience. The IVHQ team worked as a sort of triage to manage the high volume of people who visit for the doctor. We mainly delt with individuals who were low income and relied on the free clinic to manage CVD, diabetes, and chronic pain. We therefore conducted a lot of blood pressure and sugar checks. We also met a lot of people dealing with rashes and fungal infections during the hotter season. This experience also help us to understand what life is like for these individuals. I would highly recommend volunteering with IVHQ. There programs are well established in the community and ensure that volunteers are safe and feel welcome. They were also very flexibale and ensure that any dietary restrictions or other accommodations are met.

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
