Low income communities have very limited access to good health services, and this is where this project comes in. We partner with rural clinics that provide free or very accessible service where volunteers can work with local doctors and nurses.
Health volunteering is perfect for people who are in pre-med or are thinking of majoring in medicine or a related field. As opposed to the medical volunteering program , volunteers in health support schools, elderly homes and programs for individuals with disabilities. In this program you will be supporting nurses and staff for patient’s well being helping administer medicine and taking care of patients.
Volunteers in this program can assist one of our partner clinics where many special needs patients are treated to develop their full potential. Some patients are able to come to the clinic, but volunteers will also go on house visits along with staff from the clinic.
- Work alongside local doctors and nurses to treat different conditions and prevent others in areas with scarce resources.
- Venture to Reserva Natural Laguna de Apoyo for sailing, fishing, or a scenic hike
