Based in Norwich, in the UK we have been providing thousands of affordable volunteer nursing opportunities every year since our organisation was founded in 2006.
Our structured nursing programme in the Kwahu regional state hospital in Ghana is $118 per week. This includes accommodation and an experienced supervision team both at the hospital and at our volunteer house for out of hours support. This lower program fee allows our medical volunteers to stay longer or make a return trip.
Opportunities are available in theatre, trauma, maternity, childrens, adults, emergency, outpatient and laboratory work suitable for bio-med students.
In addition there are opportunities to provide first aid to remote village communities and help escorting patients to hospital where urgent treatment is needed.
We regularly place student nurses and medical undergraduates and qualified professionals at the O2 clinic in Cuzco, Peru and at the Red Cross clinic in Merida, Mexico.
