UK Child and Health Care Volunteers

Volunteer abroad in Thailand, Cambodia, and Nepal

Why volunteer in child and health care in Thailand, Cambodia, and Nepal? 

Volunteer doctors and other healthcare volunteers work with children

Child and health care volunteer work can contribute to better health for both children and adults. Without good health people do not learn. Many volunteers work with children and health care teaching good health care practices, English, and other skills in places other overseas volunteers don’t go!

Good health care is taken for granted by us, the privileged, but the poor can not take it for granted in countries like Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Nepal where there is little health care available for the poor. With Openmind Projects you can find child and health care volunteer opportunities in Thailand, Nepal,and Cambodia. This is a chance for volunteers on a gap year or career break to care for children and poor people who might otherwise have few health care resources in their lives. You can volunteer in an orphanage or a child care centre and give the underprivileged children the attention they love to get. You can help them to a better chance of living independently in the future.

The most important qualities that you as a volunteer overseas need to possess are patience, adaptability to different work and living conditions, compassion, and a desire to help. Some health care volunteers need to be qualified, some don’t. Ask us what project will suit you.

Local conditions are often basic and staff overworked or less qualified. Volunteers may provide the extra resource or skill to make a significant difference. A volunteer is a welcome help, and in turn the volunteer experience will benefit you! Care work in a different cultural setting will develop you as an individual. You return home with more self-confidence and more empathy and understanding of underprivileged people.

Where the UK Volunteers can go

Child care volunteers are welcome to do volunteer work abroad, to go where other overseas volunteers don't go, in Thailand, Cambodia, and Nepal. With Openmind Projects you find child care volunteer opportunities at schools, orphan homes, homes for the disabled, nursery schools, and child centers.

What the UK Volunteers can do
As a child care volunteer you activate the kids while teaching basic English and social and life-skills by getting involved in the day-to-day life at the child center or orphanage. There is scope for many talents you may bring: Arts and crafts or singing and music are always popular activities as are sports and games. Volunteers may also help train the children in personal hygiene. 

In child centers and orphanages our volunteers are often in involved in the teaching or medical or health care issues. You may be helping the children with their homework on their return from school.

in these child care projects, you'll be working with children of different ages. You'll help with a variety of activities such as art, games, and songs, and assist local staff to develop stimulating new ideas to interest young children in learning. You can do many things, like helping to prepare meals, providing personal hygiene advice, teaching English and literacy skills, or possibly giving children a nice break by taking them out. Any encouragement you offer goes a long way towards building a child's self esteem and confidence.

volunteer work can be challenging at times but the needs of the children should inspire you to persevere.

Elder Care Volunteers

Despite the significance of family and respect for elders in Southeast Asia, many elderly people are alone without a family and some get insufficient support from under-resourced local organizations. Volunteers help reduce this deficit in resources to assist the eldery to better lives.
