Description: Volunteers who join this exciting international workcamp get an opportunity to immerse into a worthy while experience in the healthcare system in Zimbabwe. It should be noted that this workcamp does not seek to give volunteers a medical experience. It is meant to give volunteers a chance to experience how dilapidated healthcare facilities have become in Zimbabwe and take part in making a difference by refurbishing the infrastructure. Volunteers will engage in repainting walls, replacing window panes, broken doors, working on signage, painting and redesigning the fire assembly point, refurbishing car park area among other critical hospital areas.
Type of Work: The team of participants will be split into two groups. Fifteen volunteers will work from Chinotimba Clinic on the same duties while the other fifteen will go to Victoria Falls Hospital. We are working with other international and regional players to help furnish the healthcare facilities with equipment and call upon anyone wishing to donate to mobilize anything usable in a healthcare facility.
Accommodation: Volunteers will be accommodated at the volunteer guest house which is located approximately 4kms from the city centre. Internet facilities are provided free of charge for volunteers 24hrs a day. However, it should be noted that this may be regulated or restricted in some instances depending on the daily usage but would generally be available all the time. Running water and water system toilets are available.
Requirements: Participants should be mature and willing to work independently, and prepared for long hours.
