Where There Is No Doctor Charity Profile
Where there is not a doctor’ in the hill-tribes is headed by David Mar Naw, a qualified and experienced doctor with over 8 years training in the British medical and Indian Ayurverdic practices. He is a self-will volunteer and his medical social work was started with financial assistance from an NGO and is now reliant on donations from various volunteer groups and individuals. As well as offering expert medical advice and treating the local hill-tribes, David supports these communities by developing sanitation systems, supporting orphaned and needy individuals and raising funds for medical supplies and new school buildings.
Where There Is No Doctor Volunteer Information
This volunteer program offers you a safe, meaningful, fun and low cost way to experience hill-tribe culture whilst doing something that counts. Working alongside Dr David, you will travel from village to village in the remote hill-tribes of two sub-districts of Chiang Rai in Northern Thailand, assisting him whilst he gives medical advice and treatment.
You will get to experience the real life of these peoples, eating with the local families and staying in their bamboo huts. Through Dr David’s knowledge of their languages and background, you will get to learn about their local culture and traditions. Mealtimes are a bonus with hoards of villagers gathering to meet you and share their stories.
Short and long-term volunteer programs can be arranged, offering participants exposure to hill-tribe life and living, as well as a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a difference among those who most need it. We repeat that we are looking only for people who are willing and are ready to give their time, energy, skill and possible donations for the good cause. Before you go any further we strongly suggest that you go through our website on "about us" and "about hill-tribes of Thailand", so that you have a good knowledge about who we are and the kind of work we are doing as well as the poor human beings we are helping.
We ask anyone that is interested in volunteering with us to go through our website thoroughly before applying to ensure that this is the kind of volunteer work you are searching for. The right volunteer to us means a person who is willing to share their energy, skill and money to those who need it most.
