Pediatrics hospital

Participate to a health programme in Ecuador !

This programme takes place in a large hospital in Quito and treats nearly 60% of children aged 0 to 18 years in Ecuador. Suffice to say that the staff is very busy and have to meet very different needs.

The Hospital services include Accident and Emergency, palliative care, orthopaedics, paediatrics, X-rays and major burns.

Volunteer's tasks depend on current needs and the skills of each participant.

Here is an example of a typical morning:

9:30 am to 10 am: Distribution of linens/nappies to different wards in the hospital.

10 to 11:30 am: Visiting the children in the different units and teaching English, maths, reading and writing or other subjects. Depending on their age, you can teach them numbers, colours, names of fruits etc.

11:30 to 12:30 am: Check administrative records and distribute meal tickets to mothers of children awaiting treatment.

Next to the hospital is a house that was built for families who come from other parts of Ecuador, but who need to stay in Quito for extended care of family members. You can also help here with building maintenance, preparation and distribution of meals, recording the medical history of the families and supporting the various services of the hospital.
