Medical Health & Community Development
We help small community clinics in villages as well as in larger hospitals.
You can assist in developing healthcare but you also get great experience on how to work in a developing country with limited medical facilities.
Volunteers gain medical experience by shadowing local professionals at either a clinic or hospital and may also be able to take part in medical outreach campaigns in local villages.
