Southern tribes of KARA
For many years, humedica is supporting endangered people in the Omo area of Ethiopia. In 2020 we will again carry out PHC-missions with mobile clinics among the people of Kara in the southwest of Ethiopia, near the town of Jinka. humedica is operating a health care station which is operated by a project coordinator.
There is a need for physicians and nurses for medical teams which, together with local staff, provide PHC for about 3.000 people living in the villages of Duss, Korcho and Labuk. Dentists, gynaecologists and ophtalmologists are also welcome.
The accommodation will be in the team house of the humedica health care center; the participants should adjust to temperatures around 40 degrees, there is no air condition and there is only solar energy. The journey is via flight to Addis Abbeba and from there a two day drive with an off-road vehicle to the site of the mission.
Applicants should be able to identify with an active Christian faith.
Period of time:
Kara I 8th – 27th March 2020
Kara II 27th September – 16th October 2020
Under the same conditions, training in teams of two is possible throughout the year.
Minimum duration of stay should be 3 weeks. The trainings are on-Job trainings.
