FIMRC's Project Las Delicias, located 45 minutes outside of the capital city of San Salvador, brings medical care to a rural community of over 3,000 residents. The centrally located clinic serves as FIMRC's base within the community where primary care services, including pediatric attention, prenatal and postpartum care are provided.
Volunteers maintain important roles in the clinic through assisting with patient intake and charting, pharmacy operations, and waiting room education. Volunteers are also instrumental in our extensive community outreach efforts that include rural medical brigades, prenatal home visits, vaccination campaigns, water treatment and filter distributions, nutrition groups, as well as school based health presentations.
Over the course of your trip you'll receive an unfiltered experience in health care field work abroad, and learn about the tremendous impact that even one person can have!
