In Partnership With: Children's Vision International
Proposed Project Dates
19th to 27th June 2019
About The Mission
Each year Children's Vision International operates a medical outreach, supported by the Colombian Navy and Marines. LIFT has sent out a medical team each year since 2011 to be part of a larger international medical team. Many of the people treated will only have this one opportunity to seek medical attention. Sadly each year the team has to turn away almost as many people as it is able to treat. Often people in family groups, travel great distances on foot to be treated.
About The Work
Our Medical team will join with other health professionals from around the world for this 8 to 10 day intense health care programme. The team will assess, diagnose and treat the very poor of Colombia. Operations if required will be carried out in hired operation theatres. Each person who volunteers will be currently practising in their field of health care and each volunteer will be required to provide proof of their profession. Our team last year worked with remote people groups along the Amazon River, protected and guided by the Colombia Navy. Treating people who otherwise would have no access to health care. We are seeking health professionals who want to serve God by using their skills, outside their comfort zone.
Doctors, Surgeons, GPs, Dentists, Nurses, Physiotherapists, Opticians etc. There is a need for all types of health professionals.
8 Volunteers Required
