Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Through determination and the belief that all children deserve health, FIMRC declares itself as a major force in the delivery of healthcare worldwide - one clinic and one child at a time.
At FIMRC, we try to directly influence the health of children by encouraging and supporting individuals and groups who desire to travel to medically underserved areas of the world. FIMRC believes that better health is best achieved by direct care to those who can least access it. FIMRC organizes trips for volunteers to our clinics on an ongoing basis in an effort to supplement the care being delivered by local professionals. Medical volunteers work together to do physicals and deliver acute care as necessary. Non-medical volunteers assist with translating, administration, and a variety of other tasks.
We also ncourage future health leaders to become involved in our purpose by recognizing their achievements. We encourage students to start a FIMRC chapter and participate in local community service activities as well as visit a FIMRC clinic so that they may experience firsthand the goal of healthier children worldwide - the end result of FIMRC's vision.
Fundraising for the construction of pediatric clinics in areas currently lacking a reliable source for healthcare. FIMRC's foremost goal is to establish in underserved areas a facility that can serve as a center for healthcare administration to the children in that community, and as a base for our health education programs that serve to improve basic knowledge about the normal functioning body and about common diseases endemic in that population. Prior to the construction of a clinic, FIMRC mandates that a member of our Project Development Team visit the proposed site and conduct a population survey and health assessment. Follow-up visits subsequent to project initiation are also required to ensure proper use of our resources, and ultimately to monitor the clinic's success. As continuity of care is a priority, a basic charting system exists in each clinic and serves to document the care each child receives over time.
We support clinics in El Salvador, Uganda, Peru, Costa Rica, & Nicaragua
