The program

This wonderful project was created with the goal of supplying essential medical treatment to vulnerable residents in one of the poorest regions of Mexico. Set in one of the most beautiful inland cities in the mountains of Southern Mexico, the Healthcare Program provides a great opportunity for med-students, nurses, paramedics, and qualified medical practitioners to volunteer in local hospitals and clinics, both public and private, in and around the historic city of Oaxaca.

The level of direct involvement and patient care will be reflective of volunteer’s knowledge and training; however, any medical assistance will make a huge difference to the lives of the most vulnerable in society. Suitably trained and experienced volunteers will perform surgical procedures, fulfilling a huge need for this work in the region where there are insufficient numbers of medical staff. A variety of medical support is greatly needed with all volunteers being put to good use.  Volunteers knowledge, skills and abilities save lives on this program and make a truly positive impact for those who need it most.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free healthcare to the most disadvantaged in society
  • Improve the health and long term wellbeing of some of Mexico’s most impoverished people
  • Save lives and make a real difference to the people of the Oaxaca region
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both residents and international volunteers alike

How you can help

Volunteers play an integral role in achieving the goals of this project. Working closely with various clinics, volunteers who stay for more than one week will have the amazing opportunity to work in different clinical settings each week, gaining valuable experience in a short time. Some clinics are in downtown Oaxaca, however most are located a short distance from the city, providing a great chance to see more of the country and various cultures in this ethnically diverse region. It is in these diverse communities that volunteers will be making a huge difference, changing the lives of the most vulnerable in society.

Volunteers contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Work in clinics to supply medical assistance to the most disadvantaged and culturally diverse people of Mexico
  • Network with local residents and local project staff
  • Supply medical services to people in Oaxaca City and the surrounding areas
  • Perform medical procedures and consultations as appropriate to the volunteer’s skills and training

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

Oaxaca is a colorful, clean and vibrant city in the southern mountain area of Mexico, with a surprising amount of tourists, ex-pats, and volunteers on the streets. The city is big enough to have something for everyone, yet small enough to manage on foot. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from, including many with rooftop garden-bars to enjoy the picturesque beauty of the area.

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Xoxocotlan Airport

Upon your arrival in Oaxaca, you will collected at the airport (or bus station) by a member of your assigned host family and taken to your accommodation. Here you will be welcomed and settled into your new surroundings. 

On Monday morning you will make you way (a short walk) to the local team offices where will receive a full orientation. A representative from the local team will fill you in on local and regional customs, traveling, rules and recommendations, and of course, what to expect from your volunteering experience. This is a great opportunity to get to know your hosts, meet your fellow volunteers, and ask any last questions you may have. You will then be taken to your projects site where you will be introduced to the onsite project team and settled into your project work. Easy!

  • Program Arrival Day: SUNDAY
  • Program Departure Day: SATURDAY
  • Arrival/Departure Airport: Xoxocotlan International Airport, Oaxaca City, Oaxaca, Mexico (Code: OAX)

For those who require extra nights, an additional fee of US$20 per night must be paid directly to your program coordinator on arrival in Mexico. Additional accommodation subject to availability. 

Accomodatie

Volunteers on this program will be accommodated with a local host family, and will gain the opportunity to become immersed in the local culture and custom, improving their knowledge of the people, culture and language. Mexican families are renowned for their hospitality and love to learn more about different cultures. Living with a local family truly is the best way to throw oneself into the local culture and to meet people who will often become lifelong friends!

All families have been fully vetted by our local team and have extensive experience hosting international volunteers. Depending on the time of year it may be necessary to share a room with other volunteers, but private rooms are often available upon request (additional fees may apply). Volunteers will be provided access to a shared bathroom. Host families are often happy to wash clothes for volunteers for a small fee to cover the additional electricity, though mostly volunteers will use a local laundromat. Wifi is available at most host family houses, however we ask volunteers to remember access to this service is a privilege and may be limited at times. A multitude of internet cafes are available throughout Oaxaca.


Gastfamilie
Eten & Drank
Host families will provide breakfast during the working week. Lunch is not included but can be purchased at a nearby café while at your project site.

Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?

Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Xoxocotlan Airport (OAX) in Oaxaca. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar Mexico.
Reisverzekering
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor Mexico biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Mexico dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Mexico.
