The projects help to improve the quality of life of children and adolescents with mental and physical disabilities and their families. They provide educational opportunities as well as various therapy services. Volunteer placements are possible in the areas of special education, remedial education as well as in physiotherapy and occupational therapy.
With us, you have the opportunity to support two different hospitals in Arusha. You can get an insight into the Tanzanian health system, which is very different from what you know from home. Most Tanzanians do not have health insurance and therefore have little access to good medical care. Your help is needed here!
Lutindi Mental Hospital is a private mental health facility in the scenic Usambara Mountains of Tanzania. Most patients are from the big cities and are addicted to alcohol or illegal drugs, or have schizophrenia or psychosis. Much emphasis is placed on occupational therapy in a rural setting that differs as much as possible from the big city.
