High­lights

Support the functioning of Nepali hospitals and make healthcare more accessible to vulnerable people
Put your medical skills and knowledge into practice
Learn new medical skills, as you can be placed in different rooms in the hospital (although your position within each room depends on your abilities)
Experience first-hand Nepalese culture and traditions by staying with a local family and interacting with locals on your daily life
Enjoy some of the interesting and beautiful things Nepal has to offer: colourful festivals, ancient palaces, astonishing landscapes.
Put in practice your knowledge and learn a lot more while also supporting the functioning of Nepali hospitals. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Groups
50+
This volunteer program is open to trainees, nurses, medical students and medical professionals; anyone with a medical background is welcome. 

Each volunteer will be able to put into practice what they have learned, under the guidance of local professionals, while making medical care accessible to local Nepalese communities who are currently in great need of help. 

Through this volunteer experience, volunteers will gain unique and useful medical experience, such as learning to help with relatively basic equipment or experiencing firsthand how medical care works in third world countries. The experiential value of this program is especially high because each week of your stay, you will be able to stay in a different hospital room, allowing you to become familiar with how Nepalese hospitals operate. 

Volunteers will be assigned tasks and placed according to their current skills. Throughout their entire experience, volunteers will work closely with local hospital staff and local doctors and nurse practitioners who will guide them through their program. Volunteers can expect to participate in tasks such as dressing wounds, supporting patient care, performing pressure, pulse and temperature checks, providing surgical assistance, performing medical examinations, and providing support to the local hospital medical team; these tasks will be assigned based on the specific skills the volunteer possesses. 
  • In addition, volunteers can provide support in areas such as general medicine, emergency, ICU/CCU care department, surgery, outpatient, nursing, pediatrics, gynecology and dental services.

Typical day

Volunteers work on weekdays, approximately four to six hours per day. Weekends are free for volunteers to discover Nepal and enjoy the rich cultural heritage and landmarks it has to offer.

Free-time activities

Tourism is the largest industry in Nepal and its biggest source of foreign income. This is precisely due to the very rich cultural heritage and beautiful attractions Nepal has to offer. We believe that during your stay as a volunteer you shall be able to enjoy some of those very beautiful sights as well. Some of the highlights we could suggest are:

  • Assisting any of Nepal's very colourful and interesting festivals, where you'll be able to dive into Nepal's culture and history.
  • The Kathmandu valley UNESCO sites
  • Trekking routes such as the Annapurna Circuit, Sanctuary, and Jomsom
  • Hot air balloons over the Himalayan mountains
  • Exploring waterways on a raft
Among many others!
