Medical Volunteers in Tanzania

Become one of the medical volunteers in  Tanzania, help to treat people and create health awareness at the dispensary.

In 2002 the Servants of the Poor, Daughters of Charity opened the dispensary. Primarily their mission was to attend to basic healthcare needs and education of their local communities. Within this culture, cattle is their way of life and the main source of income, when necessary. Education and healthcare was perceived as less valuable, as people resorted to traditional healing methods.

Medical assistance for the poor

When the facility began in January 2002, people did not see their assistance as necessary, as they had already become accustomed to their own methods of care. Only when these showed negative results did people begin to use the dispensaries facilities.

Why get involved as a medical intern?

The dispensary is seriously understaffed with only one clinician employed; they have several assistants however help is always required and appreciated.

As a volunteer you would be apart of a lifesaving team, to those truly in need.
