FIMRC's Project Alajuelita, located about 30 minutes from the capital, San Jose, brings medical care to rural areas of Costa Rica. The centrally located clinic serves as FIMRC's base within the community where primary care and psychological services are provided to patients of all ages.
Volunteers maintain important roles in the clinic through assisting with charting patients’ vitals, inputting patient data into our electronic record systems, building health based curricula on various topics, and observing clinical interactions with medical staff. Outside FIMRC’s clinic, volunteers will have the opportunity to work on health initiatives in a soup kitchen located in the underserved areas of Alajuelita where children play in safety and receive hot meals daily. No previous medical experience is required!
FIMRC is proud to be a grassroots sustainable organization. Volunteer with FIMRC and make an impact with an organization that's working in the community even long after your trip!
