Health care professionals from all disciplines are needed to share their expertise in Tanzania, Peru and Romania. You can change the arc of a child’s life in just one or two weeks through patient care, health screenings and checkups and by teaching basic health and wellness practices. Translation is provided by our staff or bilingual students. Every health professional abroad makes a genuine and lasting difference on health care projects in clinics and throughout the communities.
Tanzania: Our new modern health clinic centers on maternal and child health care, and offers services to nearly 20,000 local residents in 6 area villages. Most patients are pregnant women and children. Volunteer physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, nurses, lab technicians, dentist and health facility administrators are all needed to treat patients and support and mentor the clinic staff.
Peru: Volunteer professionals assist local practitioners in a variety of health care projects at a clinic run by Sagrada Familia. The patients are 600 orphaned, abandoned or abused children, zero to 17, who reside at this large children’s home, and 700 day students who live in the impoverished adjacent community.
Romania: Volunteers work in a pediatric ward at the municipal hospital and the affiliated placement center for abandoned and disabled children. Apply your health care skills to physical therapy, screenings and non-invasive exams. Psychiatrists, psychologists, and child development professionals are needed to help with assessments and work with the children in a designated sensory room.
