WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS FOR THE MEDICAL TEAM FROM AUGUST 1ST 2018.
The medical team of Boat Refugee Foundation is working in refugee camp Moria on Lesbos, Greece, where thousands of people reside often for a long time. The conditions in the camp are dire and harrowing, causing despair and feelings of hopelessness amongst the refugees. Many basic facilities are insufficient, and the camp is severely overcrowded. For you to be able to work in the camp, it is necessary and important to take knowledge of the situation and the effects it causes, like despair and sometimes aggression.
The medical team runs evening shifts located at a medical cabin in the camp, seven days per week. As a volunteer, your shifts consist of running walk-in hours for primary and emergency care. The patients mostly originate from the Middle East, other parts of Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. The variety in complaints is wide; from flu-like symptoms and relatively simple problems to severely ill patients and acute psychological complaints.

Unfortunately we do not accept:
Boat Refugee Foundation owes her reason for existence to the dedication of many volunteers and donors. We would not be able to do this work without them. We want to spend as many available funds as possible on the help for refugees. Therefore, we ask all volunteers to pay their own travel and accommodation expenses. Our volunteer house on the island provides accommodation for all volunteers, for a fixed amount per night. For more information about that, please click the link below. Moreover, volunteers are responsible for their own travel insurance and possible vaccinations.
Do you recognise yourself in the profile described above and would you like too volunteer with us in Greece? Please apply by filling out the form below. We will contact you as soon as possible. Based on the applications, we will make a selection.
