Volunteering With India (VWI)

Medical Mobile Ambulance Assistant

Jaipur, India show on map

This program is about to support our Medical Health Care Van which run in rurals, slum and backward areas in Jaipur, India.

About the Program

Under this project our prime focus is on providing and supporting the population which lives in rural and slums in Jaipur. We have a mobile van which everyday runs in rurals & slums part of Jaipur. The mobile van, in the form of a well-equipped clinic, is reaching directly to the target population to support and provide them with counseling, health and medical services. The clinic reassures them that they are not alone in this world, strengthens their self-confidence and shows that somebody is there to care for, love and support them. 

As a medical volunteer your role will be mainly observational. If you have no experience doctors will show you all they can and introduce you to many different cases. If you come with a medical background, you will be given more responsibility and the potential to get more hands-on work. In our medical van there is Doctor, Nurse, Compounder, Counselor , Receptionist & local volunteer which generally provide free health check-up, treatment of general sickness, STI Treatment & HIV/AIDS Counseling and Education Services. This service is generally for the children or people which are not able to afford medicine, doctor fees, not aware by the diseases and come from BPL (below poverty line).

Why it is important

Most of the time, street children are over-exploited and forced into jobs where they have to work continuously even during sickness. The hazardous and unprotected environment of these street children leads to various health problems such as tuberculosis, asthma, hepatitis, jaundice, malaria, respiratory tract infections, sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS etc. This problem is further aggravated by poor delivery of and access to health services. Their lower awareness and literacy levels also prevent them from finding such services. Mobile Clinic was planned to help in these areas.

Since this clinic is mobile, various support and services will be provided on the doorstep and at the convenience of the target population. On a daily basis it goes to rural/slums/backward areas. These places have been identified on the basis of survey and requirements of the street children.

Role of the Volunteer

This project works everyday Monday to Friday for 4 hours in afternoon. You will be going in our Mobile Van  ( BUS ) with our team in rural/slum areas. Helping to look after all the children, people coming to get treatment, diagnosis their problem/disease, provide them medicine, health check-up, general health treatment, counselling and run awareness raising activities.
