Access to quality healthcare services is a privilege to only a few in remote areas. With the hospital established by a local NGO, this program will require participants to provide further assistance to the hospital staff especially the nurses.
Moreover, some of the people in villages would not afford transport to the hospital. This creates an opportunity for participants to contribute as backpack nurses. This will involve remote access to patients who are confined in their homesteads.
The backpack nurses will be part of a challenging, enlightening and adventurous experience as it involves long distance walking. Later on they can take a dip in the pool at our accommodation to unwind.
Volunteer experiences have a direct and positive impact on local communities by injecting money into the local economy through the purchase of food, transportation, and tourism activities. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the comunity and make a difference in the world. Depending on the type of volunteer experience you are interested in, your time can be spent improving educational resources and opportunities, providing medical services to underserved communities, or promoting environmental conservation and sustainable farming techniques.
Arrive at NBO (Jomo Kenyatta International Airport) at the meeting point on Saturday or Sunday well before the designated time (13.00 hour). Saturday arrivals need to book one extra night at our accommodation.
You will spend 4-6 hours assisting hospital staff and attending to patients with close supervision by qualified personnel. The day could look like:
Leave the accommodation Saturday morning. Minivans depart close by every 1-2 hours. Change minivan/bus twice to get to the Airport.
Food served will mainly be Kenyan food, which consists of vegetables, potato, eggs, bread, pancakes (commonly known as “chapati”) and fruits such as oranges, bananas and avocados.
You will be accommodated in our center. All participants are expected to be environmentally aware and use all resources with restraint, especially electricity. Sometimes there are power cuts during the day, but do not panic. This is life in the village. There is an available water supply. You will have all of the necessities while here.
You will have meals provided and rooms cleaned on the weekends, but you will also be expected to clean up after yourself and play your part in keeping the accommodation neat and organized. The location is very close to the green steds international school and is a few minutes walk to the Lake Nakuru National park Southern gate. It is around 15KM from Nakuru town.
