The Medical Industry in the United States is
one of the best, if not the best in the world.
For this reason, we are honored whenever we
can have volunteers who give not only their
expertise and time, but also their finances
to treat and care for the people who would never
otherwise get the kind of treatment they receive
through this program and similar ones like it.
Over the years, through our partner organization
(International Evangelism Center) in Tanzania,
we have seen hundreds of lives transformed through
the work of hundreds of volunteers. Our partner
organization has been helping people in various
parts of Tanzania for nearly 20 years. They
work from a small clinic which, was established
in 1990. On a regular basis, the little clinic
cannot cater to the needs of people due to complications
beyond their capabilities, mainly in expertise.
Simply put, WE NEED YOUR HELP.
There are many reasons why people volunteer.
For some it is the sheer happiness that comes
from seeing a life transformed right before
their eyes through simple procedures or just
exhibition of love to the unloved. To others,
reasons might range from a sense of adventure,
religious convictions, experiences of new culture
and customs, etc. Moral and ethical satisfaction
in helping those less fortunate is certainly
a reason for many. Whatever your reason is,
we would be honored to have you as part of our
BIG ARE THE GROUPS?
Based on our experiences, we try to limit our
participation to 14 people per group. We prefer
a good mix of talents, which often ranges from
Doctors, Practitioners, Nurses to helpers who
are not medical professionals. For this reason,
we do not limit participation to licensed medical
professionals only. We also encourage spousal
participation, as long as the non-licensed spouse/individual
is able and willing to help at the clinic. There
are things that do not require medical skill
set and knowledge. Things like counting pills,
organizing lines and prepping the patients before
they receive treatment.
If this program sounds like something you'd
be interested in doing, we'd urge you to please
call us or emails us. Also, please recruit other
people, within your sphere of influence, whom
you believe would be of similar interes.
IS THE COST?
Cost per person will vary depending on the duration
of your trip. Currently, for 14-day trip, the cost per person, excluding
airfare, is about $2700. This amount covers all of
your transportation, accommodations, buying medicine
for the clinic during your treatment days, etc. It
also covers transportation and accommodation for your
safari portion, which is all-inclusive.
If you have
any more questions or you would like to see a sample itinerary, please don't hesitate
to drop me an email or call me.
In some cases, a portion or your entire trip
can be tax deductible. Please check with your accountant.
Certainly, part of being a volunteer is being somewhat
adventurous. Well, it would not be appropriate for
you to be so close to an adventure and not live it.
We are talking about one of the best safari adventures
in the world: Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro
Crater, Tarangire National Park, Arusha National Park,
Lake Manyara National Park. All these parks will all
be in your back yard, in the case of Arusha National
Park, that's literal. So, as part of your volunteering
package that we will put together, we will treat you
to a five-day safari. This will be something that
will be truly unforgettable. These are true perks
of a volunteer and the rewards of an adventurer.
