Gain medical experience in a fascinating country with diverse and lively culture and work with local doctors to treat Nepalese.
Nepal’s health sector is slowing moving towards standards seen internationally. But the cost of using the facilities is very expensive and can’t be afforded by the poor. The few government hospitals that exist are often poorly run and very slow in delivering their services. They are located in urban centers, away from rural areas where the poor often originate.
RCDP-Nepal has worked in conjunction with local hospital to offer health projects for volunteers willing to help poor and serve the humanity. During your work, you will treat many poor working together local medical professionals and bring smiles to their faces.
Volunteers in healthcare project in Nepal will assist local doctors and medical staffs. You will be assigned work according to your level of experience.
