Can you spare two weeks to help out in a medical clinic or local hospital? Access to medical services in Uganda and East African communities is often limited. So healthcare and medical volunteering can make such a difference in basic services such as:
Diabetes screenings, tooth extractions, baby check-ups and pre-natal exams in local clinics, village dispensaries, and in homes.
Dentists, nurses, physicians and medical students are also needed to perform physical check-ups, test eyesight, examine newborns, and in some cases, perform outpatient surgeries. While the needs and the working conditions are very basic, your ‘hands-on’ contribution can be life changing.
Our host communities often lack modern medical facilities, so medical volunteers should plan to bring their own instruments and medical supplies.
