Volunteers first join Friends of the Children of Haiti to offer their services, whether medical or non-medical, to people in dire need. What they don’t expect though is the drastic impact their experience in Haiti has on their own lives. Most say it is “life-changing.”
For the past 30 years, hundreds of people from all walks of life have volunteered as team members on FOTCOH medical missions in Haiti.
FOTCOH provides all the medical supplies, diagnostic services and logistical support necessary to run a medical clinic. But it takes much more than just medicine, transportation and housing. It takes the skill and determination of those special few medical professionals and laypersons willing to work together to create a highly professional and productive medical mission amid the Haitian people.
Team volunteers work side-by-side with experienced FOTCOH personnel, treating people who otherwise will go without any medical attention. New volunteers, some with no medical training at all, often find themselves amazed at how their gifts can aid the mission, from filling prescriptions to cooking meals to offering a warm touch of reassurance to a frightened Haitian patient undergoing treatment. All volunteers return home with a sense of experience and satisfaction unmatched in other endeavors.
If you are interested in volunteering for a future mission please contact FOTCOH for details on volunteer requirements and current mission schedule.
Help change Haiti, help change your life.
