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.
Depending on the volunteer’s experience in the medicine and health field, the level of responsibility and involvement will vary.
What could I be doing?
Conducting health and hygiene workshops in rural schools.
Helping doctors by measuring patients vital signs.
Helping doctors and nurses with daily tasks at clinics.
Helping in state pharmacies to provide service.
Participating in medical outreach campaigns if one coincides with you service time.
Teaching indigenous families in rural areas about basic health measures and nutrition.
