Non-Medical Volunteers

The Foundation of All Our Clinics

On missions abroad with International Medical Relief, typically at least half our volunteers have no medical background. Their services are a critical component to the successful operation of our clinics. Whether you’re looking to make an impact on your family vacation this year – we welcome children and teens who want to volunteer! – or you just want to travel to make a difference for those less fortunate than yourself, an international mission with IMR may be ideal for you.

As a non-medical volunteer, you will work side by side with the medical team each day in clinic, as well as build important relationships with members of the community. IMR volunteers provide comprehensive community health education to our patients to empower them to take and manage their own health care. This is a critical component for all short-term medical missions, as it allows us to leave a lasting footprint on the community. You will be a part of this important team.

See Life Through the Eyes of the Locals

It is an amazing opportunity for non-medical volunteers to travel to a developing country and see a place they always dreamed of visiting.  These volunteers have the privilege to see life through the eyes of locals, understand the culture of these communities firsthand, and go outside the boundaries of the main sites in the history books to enjoy the smiles and tears of the people.
