A couple of weeks ago we used our Blog to announce three new programs. Today we are announcing the arrival of two new projects. One in Ecuador in the Galapagos, on San Cristobal Island and another in Kandy, Sri Lanka. Both of these new projects need medical volunteers. Medical Clinic on San Cristobal Island, Galapagos This medical project is very hands-on. On this project you are going to have the opportunity to work one on one with doctors; prepare charts for patients; hand out medication; and assist in medical exams. If you have medical experience, there may be even more you can do at the hospital. GeoVisions includes your roundtrip flight from Quito as part of the program fee as well as orientation and a tour of Quito before flying to San Cristobal Island. Of course, when you're not working at the hospital, you can be swimming, scuba diving, surfing, basking on the beach, learning about marine life, exotic birds, and even tortoises. Hospital Project in Kandy, Sri Lanka Not only will volunteers have the opportunity to assist Doctors, but this project has two unique components: After you have been observed and cleared (depending on your abilities and medical background) there is an opportunity to assist with Pediatrics. Because Ayurveda, one of the world's oldest medical systems, starting around 1500 BC. Ayurveda was developed in and around India and Sri Lanka. Volunteers at this project have the opportunity to learn more about Ayurveda directly from the area where it was developed. If you are unfamiliar with Ayurveda, think "alternative medicine" if you are from the U.S. for example. This project begins with a full week of orientation in Kandy where volunteers meet each other, learn more about Sri Lanka and its traditions, meet local people, taste the food, take some time for a little sightseeing and learn a lot more about the project. So there you are. Do you have program ideas we should consider? Places we don't currently serve? Please use the Comments section and let us know. We are always interested in where you want to go and what you want to do when you get there.
