Team Openings

  • Kenya

    December 31, 2014 - January 19, 2015. Team Leader Debbie Welden is seeking additional members for her mission to Kenya. They will be working with their partners in-country to convert a school classroom into a library, as well as following up on ongoing clean water projects. The cost is $4,400, and the only skill required is a willingness to participate. For additional information, please contact Debbie at deborah.welden@gmail.com.

  • Honduras

    The Carolina Honduras Health Foundation has a small clinic for primary care in a remote area of Honduras. Often referrals are needed and they seek US medical specialists volunteering in Honduras. At this time, they are seeking an orthopedic team who could treat a 3 year old child with a broken femur which was improperly set at the time of the break. They are also seeking a cardiology team who might see an adult male with diagnosed cardiac issues. Please contact Ken Hook, President, Carolina Honduras Health Foundation at 757-234-0073.
