Summary

Healthcare Volunteering in Kenya

Be part of a remarkable two week Healthcare volunteering programme in rural Kenya. Use your vocational skills to change the lives of rural communities who otherwise don't have access to sufficient healthcare services. Our pop-up clinics treat all ages from newborns through the elderly, you could be treating a child with jiggers (parasitic fleas that embed into the feet), tending to infected wounds, or carrying out much needed immunisations. As well as treating patients, Healthcare Outreach acts as a valuable vehicle for awareness offering help and advice on everything from family planning to nutrition.

Our dedicated medical volunteer programmes provide medical professionals with an incredible opportunity to bring knowledge and expertise to the areas of Kenya that are most in need. You'll run village clinics treating the local community, ideal for all levels of nurses and healthcare professionals, including those in training. 

This programme started in 2011, to date, our healthcare outreach initiative has benefited over 15,000 people. Make a difference and join us!
