Please notice: at the moment we are not searching for volunteers!
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.
