Clinicians of the World is now recruiting healthcare professionals to volunteer for short-term Medical Trip to Haiti. The need for medical professionals and quality healthcare workers who can volunteer their time in Haiti has reached desperate proportions. The team will provide health education and medical care to men, women, and children in remote areas of Haiti where there is little or no access to basic medical care.
Medical teams participate in mobile field clinic and also provide assistance to existing healthcare facility in Grand-Goave, Haiti. Clinicians of the World medical teams see on average 100-150 men, women, and children per day. They also provide specialty consultation and health education to Haitian Medical professionals to help build personnel capacity to meet Haiti's long-term healthcare needs.
Non Medical Volunteers are also needed and welcome to help build homes for displaced families and latrines (outhouse/toilet)in remote villages, assist with set up and take down of mobile clinic, greet and direct patients, register incoming patients, translate, etc. Volunteers will be placed according to their gifts and abilities.
As part of our Deworming Program, we are also seeking non-medical volunteers with experience in construction to help us build latrines at remote villages in Haiti during our upcoming Fall 2013 Hope for HAITI Mission Trip.
