FONHARE recruits medical and non-medical volunteers to join our team and work on our projects. All of these people bring professional abilities, practical experience, and a commitment and appreciation for the people they help.
Regarding the needs for rehab services in Haiti and the lack of rehab professionals, we cannot achieve our goals alone. Therefore, in order to meet our needs we are seeking volunteer support to help us accomplish our goal of transferring technical and medical knowledge, expertise and services to Haitians in order to enable them to help themselves manage and run programs in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
• For Rehab Volunteers we welcome applications from dedicated health care professionals, including
• PM&R & other physicians with experience in complex rehabilitation care, teaching and training
• Physical Therapists
• Occupational Therapists
• Speech Language Pathologists
• Certified Orthotists, Prosthetists & Technicians
• Special Education
• For Non-Rehab Volunteers we welcome application forms in the following areas, including:
• Human Resources
• Project Management
Please fill out an application on our “Apply to Volunteer” page and we will be in touch. Thank you!
FONHARE has established partnerships with many fine institutions and hosts several student interns throughout the year. We encourage universities and professional institutions to contact us regarding new opportunities for their PT or OT students to gain knowledge and experience in global health care. As an intern, you will get to work with a variety of situations and cases that you are never likely to see in a developed nation. You will also have the opportunity to gain a new worldview perspective and immerse yourself in a different culture. Please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options. A list of our current partners is below:
There are many ways to support FONHARE and the work we do in Haiti. We welcome all donations, no matter the amount, to help with our general operating expenses. We have also established two sponsorship programs. SPONSOR-A-THERAPIST allows your donation to help provide the opportunity for Haitian physical therapists and occupational therapists to work in their own country and receive a living wage, by supporting our therapist staff at FONHARE. Our SPONSOR-A-CHILD program brings you closer to the work we do by providing financial support to cover expenses for therapy rehabilitation of an individual child, living in the most extreme poverty, in our clinic. Both programs require a $50 monthly contribution. For more information, please contact us by submitting your information below. When making your donation, please specify where you wish your funds to be directed. Thank you!
