Volunteers should arrive on a Tuesday to begin this program.
This important medical volunteering program is best suited to students and fully qualified medical personnel, with placements depending on your level of skill and experience. Placements are currently at Lusigetti Hospital, one of the largest and busiest hospitals in the city. The hospital offers a wide variety of care to their patients, including in and out patient care, maternity care, a laboratory and pharmacy. Adjacent to the hospital and part of the program are dental, nutrition, TB, HIV and counselling services. Regardless of your training, you’ll find a healthcare area where you’ll be able to put your skills to the test and help those less fortunate.
Working alongside professional doctors and nurses, you’ll support them where it’s needed most, helping in a city where families are desperate for quality healthcare. The first few days of any placement are observation-based to ensure you get a real feel for how things are done and for the culture. Volunteers stay with ‘Mama’ in the Volunteer House, experiencing the fun and camaraderie of a volunteer community from around the world. See you in vibrant Kenya – sign up now!
