BRIGADE DATES – July 19-26, 2017
DUE TO TIME CONSTRAINTS RELATED TO TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS, APPLICATIONS SUBMITTED AFTER APRIL 1 WILL REQUIRE APPROVAL BY THE BRIGADE COMMITTEE!
Mission: Honduras has been taking short-term primary care medical brigades to the El Paraiso region of Honduras since 1999. In 2016 we saw 2,580 patients in five days. To date we have seen over 44,000 patients. When in Honduras, our volunteers reflect the Face of Christ in our work and relationships with the Hondurans. As a Christ-centered organization, we include an evangelical aspect to our medical ministry offering Christian teachings to any Honduran who chooses to participate. Many of us who go to Honduras do so because we feel called to do this good work, and because we do make a difference.
TYPES OF VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
To provide medical care we do need doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, EMTs, dentists and pharmacists. We use any kind of medical training. We always need Spanish speaking interpreters, clergy to minister to those who come to our clinics, and non-medical personnel to help with logistics. You may be assigned to pack medication, work in the pharmacy, play with the children, do crowd control, or help with educational projects. We may also have some construction jobs if we are in the midst of building a church. Non-healthcare workers need not worry about “not being needed.” All that is absolutely required is a willing heart.
