The program

This important project was created with the goal of supplying essential medical treatment to vulnerable residents in Quito. In this program, volunteers will be based in a Quito hospital, clinic or care facility, where volunteers will initially shadow doctors and other medical staff to gain an understanding of the day to day practice of medicine in Ecuador. Depending on individual education and experience, volunteers may then take part in various procedures, and/or assist local doctors and nurses in their daily duties. This program allows volunteers to work in rotation, thus experiencing the different and often challenging aspects of the medical field. The Medical Volunteering and Internship Program is ideal for med and pre-med students, as well as medical professionals of all disciplines. Those who wish to volunteer on this program, but do not have relevant education and/or experience, may do so under the strict knowledge that they will likely be limited in their capacity to physically contribute, and in most cases will often find themselves acting more as an 'observer'.

Goals of this Project:

  • Save lives and make a real difference to the people of Quito
  • Provide free healthcare to those who need it most
  • Improve the health and long term wellbeing of the residents of Quito
  • Offer a teaching experience for medical students while also supplying a much-needed volunteer labour force

How you can help

This volunteer program makes a huge difference to the lives of those in need of medical help. This program provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for medical students to monitor, observe and help where appropriate, gaining a great deal of experience and observation time. For experienced medical professionals the program offers the extremely rewarding opportunity to share their knowledge and skills to help those in need in a developing nation. 

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

  • Work in public hospitals, clinics or care facilities to supply medical assistance to those who need it most
  • Network with local medical and local project staff
  • Supply medical services to the people of Quito and the surrounding areas
  • Help with medical care as appropriate to the volunteer’s skills and training

Dagelijkse activiteiten

A volunteer’s work day on this project will generally last between 4 and 6 hours and while we ask all volunteers to be flexible in this regard, a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

7:00am Breakfast at the accommodation

7:30am Walk/bus to your project site

8:45am Pre-start meeting with project supervisor

9:00am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

A tea break and lunch break will be fitted in during the day, but often the timing of breaks will change based on the needs of the local staff and number of volunteers on hand.

2:00pm VOLUNTEERING DUTIES END

2:15pm Debrief with project supervisor

2:30pm Walk/bus back to the accommodation

Evenings Free time to relax and have dinner or go out and explore the sights and sounds of central Quito – a bustling and vibrant metropolis!

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Mariscal Sucre International Airport

Upon your arrival in Quito, you will be collected at the airport and delivered to your accommodation. On Monday morning, after making your way to the local project offices, you will receive an orientation to help you settle in, find out about your volunteering placement, the local surroundings and meet your fellow volunteers. 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 assigned project site and introduced to the project team you will be working with. Easy!

  • Program Departure Day: SATURDAY
  • Arrival/Departure Airport: Mariscal Sucre International Airport, Quito, Ecuador (Code: UIO)

Accomodatie

Volunteers on this project have the unique opportunity to experience the generous hospitality of local Ecuadorian families during their stay in Quito.

Staying with one of our local host families is an excellent way to 'live like the locals do' and get first hand experience of local culture and customs in a comfortable and supportive environment.  A home away from home!

Rooms may be shared depending on volunteer numbers and homes are well equipped with all the comforts and facilities required for an enjoyable stay. 

Volunteers will be accommodated near to their project site; either walking distance or an easy commute via public transport.

Meals can be arranged with the host family for $10 per day or volunteers are welcome to self-cater and eat out.

With its reputation for superb exotic fruits, unsurpassed fish and seafood, and not least the numerous varieties of Andean potatoes, Ecuador offers the taste buds a veritable feast. Among the traditional dishes that volunteers might want to try whilst in Ecuador are: Seco de Pollo, Menestra and Ecuadorian Churrasco - a plate consisting of roast meat, a fried egg, chips and fried plantain - or even the great delicacy, guinea pig. For savoury main courses, the hot sauce aji is often used. Easily and very cheaply available from bakers’ shops are empanadas (warm pastry pockets containing meat or cheese), llapingachos (potato and cheese pancakes) and tempting sweet pastries.

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 Ecuador biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Vaccinaties
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in Ecuador dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor Ecuador.
