The more volunteer support we can get to the people in Haiti,
the more lives we can touch!
medi for help is not just a one-off.
For us, social responsibility not only means to support people in need, but also to provide
lasting help for people to help themselves. Therefore, it is necessary to keep on recruiting
specialists from around the world to volunteer for two or four weeks at the prosthetic
ehabilitation center in Deschapelles. In addition
to the prosthetic care of the patients done by the volunteers, the local employees are trained.
In this way it can be ensured that in the medium term the locals are able to run the workshop
independently. Volunteers wanted. We continuing to look for specialists from all over the world,
who want to help out in Haiti for 2 or 4 weeks. There are a number of ways to contribute time
and expertise to our cause. We have many volunteer opportunities, e.g. for orthopaedic
technicians (CPOs), physicians (vascular and orthopaedic surgeons, …), nurses or physiotherapists.
There are no travel costs, e.g. transport, board and lodging for the volunteers.
