Medical volunteer in Uganda with IVHQ

With volunteer program fees starting from $20 per day including accommodation, you will not find a more affordable and trustworthy volunteer travel organization. But don’t just take our word for it, here are some recent reviews from our medical volunteers…

My project was suitable, interesting and thought provoking! My placement was very different from my practice back home so I feel I gained immensely from my time in Bir. I helped with the annual TB screening of school children which helped the doctor enormously, as she would otherwise have done this on her own. I’m already planning my next volunteering project! ​Liz Jackson (Volunteer in India)

As nursing students, we learned so much with the projects! It’s unbelievable that as a group we helped over 1,000 Peruvians. The project was more then I could have ever imagined! I came back a more confident nursing student because of the IVHQ program. Our host family was outstanding. Very accommodating. Meals were great and the housing that we stayed in was more then what was excepted. I couldn’t say more amazing things about this program. So thankful that there are programs like this. It was an eye opening experience and I am so thankful for it. Rebecca Sackman (Volunteer in Peru - Cusco)
