Volunteers will be working with our nurses here.There is not enough labour in soo many hospitals in Kenya and so there is need for more labour.
Applicants interested in joining our volunteer healthcare program do not need previous healthcare experience or education. Our programs are designed to accommodate volunteers of a variety of backgrounds. Whether you are a student, professional, or retiree, there is a vital role within our healthcare program for you.
Job responsibilities of volunteers joining as a medical volunteer vary with education, skills, experience and qualifications. Volunteers/Interns are not allowed to perform the major identification or surgery works. Most of the time volunteers help doctors or work as an assistant to doctors. Volunteers measure BP, temperature, height, weight and assist doctors and medical staffs with health center tasks. You may also help in health camps (if any), distribute medicines, provide tips to patients on health, nutrition and sanitation and counseling patients, and involve yourself in the treatment for minor injuries or wounds and keeping patient records.
We arrange for room, food and supervision for volunteer from the beginning through the end of program. During the first week of language and cultural program, volunteers stay with a host family in Nairobi. The home is located 10 minutes from the city giving easy access to most part of the city.
During volunteering in the health project, volunteers will stay with a host family. You will either stay near the center or you will commute to the project by matatu every day. Host families will offer a separate room but you will share the bathroom with them. You can find the details of arrangement for room/food in placement sheets provided you. Our field staff visits you every 2 weeks and maintains contact by phone or through email with volunteers who are placed in farther locations.
