About Program

Assist with providing physiotherapy and occupational therapy to children and adults with mental and physical disabilities in the Social Support Center in Da Nang city!

The volunteer will work closely with the Volunteer Vietnam physiotherapist to learn the therapy exercises. You will mainly be working at the Social Support Center, which is a home for around 200 elderly and disabled residents, many of them requiring physiotherapy and occupational therapy. The Volunteer Vietnam physiotherapist will show you how to use the variety of equipment in the two rehabilitation rooms and explain what exercises are required for each patient.

You will spend approximately 16 hours per week in the physiotherapy program. When you are not working in the physiotherapy program, you will be helping out with the other programs, such as the teaching program and care program. Volunteers are given a weekly schedule of their physiotherapy times and activities.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here. Learn more about how Volunteer Vietnam is promoting ethical volunteering.
