Various reasons including poverty creates a large barrier to the acquisition of healthcare in general. We work with village, district, and regional clinics, dispensaries and hospitals in Tanzania, Ghana and South Africa making us to be unique in placing medical volunteers. The hospitals and clinics are carefully chosen to offer volunteers the best medical experiences in their specialties. These dispensaries and hospitals have very basic equipment and facilities. As a volunteer you can join any departments of your choice such as Surgery, Obstetrics, Gynecology, Pediatrics, Radiology, Pathology, A&E and general medical wards. To insure maximum experience to our volunteers, we have qualified medical doctors to supervise our volunteers.
