I work for Partners In Health (www.pih.org) on the construction team for their New National Teaching Hospital in Mirebalais, Haiti. We are in need of carpenters to volunteer with us and travel to Haiti to do finish work on the hospital.
***Does anyone have any suggestions on good places to look for or find volunteers? Or anyone they would suggest?
Here's some more information on the project: www.pih.org/mirebalais
Information on volunteering:
8 day minimum (Saturday to following Sunday)
September 2011- May 2012
We provide, travel, accommodation, food, water and all tools needed.
Disclaimer: Volunteers must be in general good health, have all required vaccinations for Haiti, and have a valid US Passport. Volunteers must have a willingness to volunteer for a minimum of 8 days, to live in clean but very simple conditions (electricity and running water), and to eat very basic but sanitary local food and purified water. Must have an openness to working with people from a different culture. All volunteers must attend a one-hour volunteer orientation and security briefing and sign required paperwork prior to departure.
