You don’t have to be a doctor or a nurse to save lives.
We need people who want to make those who have no one feel like they have someone. The tasks may be simple, like helping a very skinny patient eat. But this is life saving. It’s hard to eat when you’re sick. You have no appetite. You feel sick to your stomach. Your mouth hurts from the sores that HIV caused. Your mother may have said don’t feed a fever. You might think you need to fast to get better.
- Feeding patients
- Walking patients
- Observing medications being taken

- Keeping patients smiling and laughing
We also need longterm volunteers who are interested in program management. For this you need:
- A sense of humor
- An interest in learning Kreyol (or French)
