  • WHAT WILL WE DO

    During the Mozambique Medical Expedition, the volunteer will have the opportunity to work in a community close to Maputo, helping to rescue the dignity of hundreds of people in situations of vulnerability. As a volunteer, you will help provide access to healthcare to the greatest number of people within the community, offering medical care in some specialties such as pediatrics and gynecology, and with the first aid service for minor incidents. The activity is carried out in partnership between the NGO and the local health unit, and volunteers will be able to help from patient triage to basic health care work.

     

    There will be a brief training for volunteers about assistance in remote areas. All activities must respect the ethical criteria related to unique services of a humanitarian nature, also guided by the culture and specificities of the region

     

    The action will take place between August 5th and 12th, 2022.
