Join A Medical Team
Travel to Haiti to work alongside Haitian doctors and nurses providing care to patients of all ages. Heart to Heart International operates 14 clinics across Haiti and as a medical professional you will likely visit several of them. This service opportunity usually follows two paths (needs and details are subject to change):
- l’Ouest or The West: This volunteer track takes you on a rotation between clinics in downtown Port-au-Prince, rural Leogane and into the mountains to the town of Fondwa. Volunteers are usually based at the main HHI Volunteer Center, la Maison, in Petionville, a suburb on the edge of Port-au-Prince.
- Sud-est or The Southeast: On this track you will find yourself on quite the adventure as you load into a 4-wheel-drive SUV and head into the remote and rugged mountains of Southeast Haiti. At the end of a nearly day-long journey you will arrive at Cascade Pichon, a community literally at the end of the road and under a towering waterfall. Here you’ll also find a HHI clinic and a warm and friendly community.
Whichever path you follow, you’ll apply your skills alongside fellow professionals and other volunteers, and you’ll be helping to expand access to healthcare for the people of Haiti.
Volunteer Cost: $99/day
Trip Duration: One week minimum (Arriving on Saturday, departing the following Saturday)
