My name is Danielle Kent, I am 24 years old and studying Adult Nursing at Edge Hill University. As part of my nursing course I have been given the opportunity to volunteer in New Delhi, India in January 2019 as a 4 week nursing enhancement placement, to gain a greater understanding of rural cultures and how their healthcare services differs from the United Kingdom. This will allow me to gain valuable experience which I can put into practice when I return to work for the NHS.
PMGY’s Medical volunteers program in India offers a fantastic opportunity to gain first-hand exposure and insight into the Indian health care system. Learn from local staff and get involved in supporting them. India Medical Volunteers. Considering the advances in India’s healthcare system, the majority of the population still experience poor health. This is due to a lack of awareness on health issues and the simple fact that many Indians cannot afford regular, if any, medical treatment. The projects we support offer free, or highly subsidised, healthcare to local people from slum and rural communities.
We provide a unique environment to allow you to explore new cultures, experience a different way of life and challenge yourself in a safe and educational way. Our volunteer programmes are designed to help you develop and learn new skills to benefit you as you progress into further education or employment. This will help to develop your confidence and interpersonal skills, regarded as essential by a university or future employer.
Volunteering in a developing country is a wonderfully rewarding opportunity but it does come with some downsides.
This additional support is really appreciated.
