As an overseas healthcare or medical volunteer you will work with local staff in support of the health care efforts.
There are a number of medical and dental clinics in Kenya where voluntary healthcare workers can be placed. We also have wonderful international voluntary service placement opportunities for dentists and dental technicians and hygienists in a number of Kenyan hospital dental units. You can also volunteer or do your volunteer work as a dental or medical assistant at one of the local hospitals.
Kenyan medical clinics, health centers and hospitals vary in size and number of patients from as many as 5 per day to as many as 200 or more. Generally overseas interns and volunteers abroad in medical and dental work will assist and support local doctor/dentists, nurses and clinicians in the normal routine of medical work including taking vital signs, dressing wounds, taking patients history, counseling patients, providing assurance and moral support to patients' family, disbursing minor drugs etc.
International volunteers and interns will be expected to work for between 3 to 8 hours a day. You will find the Kenya dental and medical volunteer abroad opportunity enlightening and rewarding.
Many of the Kenyan healthcare facilities lack modern facilities and the few that are available are often broken down from overuse. Any donations of facilities are welcome. Such donations can be channeled to the hospitals directly. Please Contact Us for advise and information.
