Dar a Luz, Honduras is seeking volunteer midwives for the months September-December 2016. Dar a Luz has been working tirelessly over the years to improve maternal health care in Honduras. We have developed collaborative working relationships with the hospitals and now with the support of the Medical Board of Honduras have the opportunity to implement more mother and birth friendly techniques and advocate for human rights during childbirth throughout the country. We need yoursupport now, to make the most of this opportunity. We also need midwives to teach and work with traditional midwives in the countryside.
To be flexible, to have cultural sensitivity, to be open minded, respectful and compassionated is very important for this work. You do not need to speak Spanish in order to volunteer. Minimum stay: at least 10 days. You are responsible for the purchase of your airline ticket, and for a very low volunteer fee (which also cover the costs for accommodation while you are here).
Please contact us for more information. We welcome your support to change birth in Honduras, where change is so much needed, your support to stop fundus pressure (Kristeller), unnecessary episiotomies and manual remove from the blood clots after birth! Thank you for your consideration! If you are interested in volunteering or have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
