PLEASE NOTE: due to the pandemic situation, all travel and missions to Sri Lanka are on hold.
The next Medical Mission will likely cover the following locations:
Galle · Yala · Batticaloa / Pasikudah · Dambulla · Colombo
Given the joys and successes experienced by all in past trips, we will open our arms to new attendees. We will be in need of diabetes educators (student-level welcomed), ophthalmologists and optometrists.
All are welcome to inquire as we also need medical generalists and specialists, allied health professionals, non-medical support and translator/interpreters.
Our work will include:
- Ongoing medical education at tertiary medical centres and regional hospitals in Southern and Central Sri Lanka
- Resource provision (spectacles, hospital supplies, medication) in regional health services
- Diabetes education and screening
- Visits to community health centres, schools and orphanages
If you have skills or experience in delivering healthcare, a connection to Sri Lanka or are just keen to get involved in our work, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that volunteers pay their own expenses (airfares, local transport, accommodation and food).
