Where they work

Remote areas of Guyana. The American and Canadian branches have in the past sent physicians and other health professionals to other locations in South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Tanzania, India, Nepal and the rural United States.

Who is needed

Physicians of any specialty.

Commitment

Missions to Guyana last two weeks, and are run once in March and once in November every year.

Financial Considerations

Volunteers may be required to pay a small fee for housing and food.
