Our healthcare placements offer an exceptional learning opportunity, in addition to a gratifying volunteer experience. These placements offer an international learning ground where you can not only view healthcare in practice but effects of volunteering abroad in healthcare are plain to see. Medical care is a basic human right, and making it accessible for all is essential. 

The hospitals and clinics that we work with are striving to fulfill that need, and can always benefit from an extra pair of hands. Working on our health projects offers a wonderful opportunity for volunteers to become familiar with the challenges and health issues of developing countries. All our hospitals and clinics are government approved. 

The work environment is way different from the circumstances you are used to work. You need to be open minded and able to deal with the sometimes poor health care options that are given.This project is open to everyone who want to help make a difference in the lives of underprivileged people in Malawi in the field of Medical Health Care in Malawi

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

Karonga is located close to the northern shores of the lake, where you can go swimming, kayaking, and relax in your free time. You can also go on a cruise on the lake. We have a museum in town that shows some findings of prehistoric humans, a dinosaur and information about Malawian history and culture. For those who wish to explore another part of Malawi, you can visit Livingstonia, and go hiking in the beautiful scenery of the Nyika Plateau. You can visit different mines in the area if you are interested in mining. It is also possible to travel to Nkhata Bay for a weekend and go scuba diving in the lake there. The Vwaza Wildlife Reserve and National Park are both easily accessible from Rumphi - wildlife viewing can be done from a game viewing vehicle or on a bushwalk for the more adventurous.

Alternatively, you can stay in Karonga where you can experience village life and culture, enjoy Malawian music, dance and learn some traditional cooking. Volunteers must arrange extra activities themselves and cover the cost of travel, food and accommodation.

Also, if volunteers are interested we can go for a photo trip around and you will always find something new and different to explore.
Volunteers can fill their free time by watching TV ,reading a book, going for swimming , doing exercises at a local gym.
