Description

Doctors of the World administer 350 programmes in 80 countries run by more than 3,000 volunteers. They operate by setting up camps globally to provide humanitarian aid through medical care, strengthening health systems and addressing underlying barriers to healthcare. Your donation will cover the daily cost of accommodation and food for a volunteer working in a camp. These camps span from setting up health facilities in the Democratic Republic of Congo to combat the high HIV rates among the youth, to rehabilitating health facilities and staff training for communities in Sierra Leone that have been devastated by Ebola, to training health workers and maintaining health facilities decimated by earthquakes in Nepal.
