" Make A Difference Volunteering & Cultural Immersion Experience "
Unique Experience while Volunteering , and learn about rural village traditions and culture
Access to healthcare has been identified as a dire need and a crises situation by the villagers in Santa Sub-division where we work. CPID�€�s mission with the help of student volunteers from abroad is improving lives and bringing health care to these remote villages isolated by bad roads and poverty through mobile health clinics, health education programs in primary care, infectious disease prevention, mother and child health awareness programs

A Rural village mobile Health Clinic : Through a joint collaboration with various medical professionals and non-professional volunteers, CPID is bringing healthcare to the villagers to consult nurse practitioners and doctors and receive health screenings- blood pressure ,diabetes and wellness education addressing the village health concerns such as Maternal Health, HIV/AIDS, TB, Malaria together with a more focused cultural immersion component embedded throughout the Health Fair event.
Medical Students under the supervision of local attending physicians, assist in conducting physical examinations ,consult patient�€�s medical history and do diagnoses.
Volunteer tasks includes assisting in preparing health education materials , sorting medication and medical supplies, helping healthcare providers at registration, take vital signs ,intake patient complaint, sitting alongside licensed doctors and professionals to hear and learn about common health issues and the impact of the project. A typical mobile clinic day starts in the morning with setting up the various stations, and lasting usually around .Expect patients showing up after hours with emergencies.
