Este programa de voluntariado está abierto para aprendices, enfermeras, estudiantes de medicina y profesionales médicos; cualquier  persona con conocimientos de medicina es bienvenida. 

Cada voluntario podrá poner en práctica lo que ha aprendido, bajo la guía de profesionales locales, al tiempo que hace que la atención médica sea accesible para las comunidades nepalesas locales que actualmente tienen una gran necesidad de ayuda. 

A través de esta experiencia de voluntariado, los voluntarios obtendrán una experiencia médica única y útil, como aprender a ayudar con equipos relativamente básicos o experimentar directamente cómo funciona la atención médica en países del tercer mundo. El valor experiencial de este programa es especialmente alto porque cada semana de su estadía, podrá estar en una habitación de hospital diferente, lo que le permitirá familiarizarse con la forma en que funcionan los hospitales nepaleses. 

A los voluntarios se les asignarán tareas y se les colocará de acuerdo con sus habilidades actuales. A través de toda su experiencia, los voluntarios trabajarán en estrecha colaboración con el personal del hospital local y los médicos y enfermeras profesionales locales que los guiarán a través de su programa. Los voluntarios pueden esperar participar en tareas tales como curar heridas, apoyar la atención del paciente, realizar controles de presión, pulso y temperatura, brindar asistencia quirúrgica, realizar exámenes médicos y brindar apoyo al equipo médico del hospital local; estas tareas se asignarán en función de los conocimientos específicos que posea el voluntario. 

  • Además, los voluntarios pueden brindar apoyo en áreas como medicina general, emergencias, departamento de atención UCI / CCU, cirugía, ambulatoria, enfermería, pediatría, ginecología y servicios dentales.

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.

  • 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
