Mission Statement

Health & Help assists people in places where it is difficult or impossible to access basic medical care. We do this through the effort and resources put forth by volunteers and donors. We improve by helping others.

Description

What do we do?
- Provide access to basic medical services and prescriptions in places with limited resources.
- Hold educational lectures about health and ways to prevent illness in the future.
- Develop and implement medical programs, provide medical students with the opportunity to get hands-on experience under the guidance of skilled doctors.
- Prepare volunteers for their time on site at the clinics, as well as help all employees learn and grow.

Where?
In regions with limited resources, where medical care does not exist or is extremely underdeveloped (lacking sufficient personnel, equipment, medicine).

How?
- The clinics have medical specialists and volunteers in other professions from different countries working 24/7. Dozens of volunteers from all over the world work for the project online.
- We talk openly about life in the clinics and share our experience as a charitable organization.

For whom?
- For underprotected and discriminated groups within the population. For those who cannot pay for treatment or buy medications because it is too expensive or simply not available.
- For socially responsible, generous patrons, both private and corporate.
- For active and committed volunteers who help the project with their knowledge and experience.

I started volunteering at Health & Help as a PR assistant, and the project immediately captivated me. It's been over three years since I joined the team, and my experience here has been nothing short of transformative. The passion, dedication, and impact this project has are remarkable. It's hard for me to imagine my life without the meaningful work, the sense of community, and the invaluable skills I've gained. Health & Help doesn't just make a difference in the world; it also profoundly impacts the lives of its volunteers, fostering personal growth and I completely share the mission of the project - We improve by helping others.

Health&Help gives not only offline volunteering opportunities, but also online. Thanks to Health&Help I started my volunteering online and got the opportunity for my professional and personal development within the best online Team ever!
