Peru: Volunteer Work in Health Care

Pays d’action: Pérou, Amérique latine et Caraïbes
Type d’activité: Santé & Médecine
This project is devoted to the middle class and weak members of the Peruvian society who can not afford suitable medical treatment. That is why donations and volunteers are urgently needed. You can help support the work on the ground by giving people your time and attention.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

As part of the medical volunteer placements in Peru, participants are able to actively and passively participate in various clinics in Cusco and the surrounding areas like San Juan de Dios. In each location, the medical personnel are determined to provide access to comprehensive medical assistance that leads to complete rehabilitation for their patients. The other clinic staff set high standards for the support and care of the patients outside of their medical treatments. They help create an environment that is comfortable and encouraging and always have an open mind towards patients' problems, questions, and needs.

The clinics that receive our volunteers may be flexible with the work schedule and will allow participants to work full time or part time. Volunteers are not required to have special skills or a professional background in medicine or health care, however, specialized students or professionals do have additional active work opportunities. Volunteers should be comfortable speaking in Spanish.
As a volunteer, you will participate in many different tasks that range from taking care of children, realizing home visits, as well as assisting in kitchen and laundry duties. Nursing students with first aid training will have additional tasks, and recent graduate, even more so. Your work will be diverse and interesting, giving you the satisfaction of helping many different patients and having the opportunity to work alongside different clinic staff in different areas of the medical field!

During your volunteer stay, you will provide assistance in diverse areas to the warm-hearted Peruvian people. Volunteers should be independent, energetic, patient, and flexible with respect to the workload at the clinic. During your volunteer placement, you will assist the doctors in the clinic, both in Cusco and in the surrounding rural areas. You will work with children that have mental or physical difficulties, including Down's syndrome, missing limbs, serious burns, etc. that depend on the assistance of volunteers to continue with rehabilitation, regular treatments, and in their everyday lives in general.

Note: The volunteer work described here takes place in different volunteer projects. The participation fee may vary depending on the project. The prices are therefore to be understood as reference prices. Please send us an inquiry, so that we can tell you the exact prices and project information.
