Epukiro Medical Clinic
Live your African dream and help make a difference by volunteering at a small, rural clinic in Namibia, improving the lives of those most in need. The San (Bushman) have lived in southern Africa for at least 20,000 years, but are now treated as third class citizens living in extreme poverty. This rewarding program offers a unique opportunity for volunteers to provide primary health care to a poor community.
The clinic can accommodate four volunteers at a time who will work mostly at the clinic. There are times when there are few patients while at other times the clinic will be crowded with patients. There are also opportunities to visit local schools and villages to provide basic medical aid or to educate the community about personal hygiene, diseases and disease prevention.
