Enroll now for the Summer International Health Fellowship!
Located only 12 km from the Haitian border, FIMRC’s Project Restauración offers the opportunity to work with populations both in the Dominican Republic and in the community of Tilori, Haiti. The area's medical facilities are understaffed and underfunded, thus FIMRC aims to strengthen the current infrastructure rather than operate a stand alone facility.
Volunteers maintain important roles through working with staff at weekly diabetic support group meetings and school based "charlas" on topics such as mosquito borne illnesses. Volunteers also work extensively in the community through surveying for new latrine locations and organizing rural medical brigades. Volunteers may also learn about the health care system from within by observing medical staff in the local hospital and clinics. No previous medical experience is required!
Over the course of your trip you'll receive an unfiltered experience in health care abroad, and learn about the tremendous impact one person can have!
