Home > Volunteer: Non-Medical in Haiti

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 told you to not feed a fever, to fast to get better.
