VINLMTV04B – Medical Care
Providing access to healthcare and sanitation
in order to keep the population thriving, is key.
At VIN we want to create awareness in local
communities by teaching and educating rural
communities as well as facilitating first hand
medical care. Nepal faces many challenges
when it comes to public health. In the rural
communities the government offers very few
facilities to support the health of its people.
With illiteracy and poverty levels being high,
many people do not have the means to change
their health, sanitation and hygiene practices and remain unaware of the major health
risks and how to minimise them.

Daily Activities
The Medical Care Volunteer will spend one day in the Kavresthali Health Clinic taking
blood pressure and monitor other vital functions. The other four days, the volunteer
will be involved in the below activities based in the rural community depending on
your experiences and background:
• Planning and designing programmes on Health, Hygiene and Sanitation
• Campaigns at schools

 

ACCOMMODATION AND FOOD

The program fee includes accommodation
and food for the duration of your
volunteering or internship.
VIN has a hostel which can accommodate
up to 35 people, with up to five bunk beds
per room.
During the volunteer induction, volunteers
will share these rooms.
If the hostel is unavailable, VIN organises
accommodation close-by in a hotel or
different hostel.
During your stay at the host family or
monastery/nunnery your sleeping arrangements may be private to shared.
Bathroom and toilet facilities are shared with your host family or monks/ nuns.
Hygiene standards vary from family to family/place to place. Sometimes it might be
very basic and hot water might only be available sometimes.
We kindly ask volunteers to be flexible and be prepared to cope with non-western
standards.
In regards to food, volunteers will receive three meals a day, in Nepali standard.
The main dishes are rice based and daal bhat (lentil soup and rice), vegetables and
curries are staple foods.
Nepalese people rarely eat meat or fish and have a mainly vegetarian diet.
Eating bread is also uncommon.
If you wish to supplement your foods with more variety (such as types of vegetables,
eggs or fruits) then the cost lies with you but host families are happy to prepare the
extra food items for you.
In the host families and monasteries/ nunnery you will share their food and please
inform us if have any specific allergies or dietary requirements.
