We are looking for:
Trained homeopaths, acupuncturists and naturopaths, or students in their 3rd - 5th year are possible if they can hold their own in case-taking. They will be supervised for prescribing.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECTS:
ABHA LIGHT PROJECTS IN KENYA
In Kenya, English and Swahili are the main languages spoken. Volunteers should be fluent in English. Translators will be available for many patients speak only Swahili or their own tribal language.
Abha Light Mobile Clinic
The main project for volunteers is the homeopathic mobile clinics. We pack up everything in a knapsack and jump on a crowded bus to visit about 3 places a month. We visit urban slum areas and rural villages. Depending on the flow, anything from 20 -100 patients --mostly women and children-- can be treated per day at a clinic. We usually stick to acute-style, or therapeutic style prescribing using homeopathic remedies. Constitutional or chronic prescribing is possible with a few of those patients who attend regularly.
Abha Light Clinics
There is also permanent clinics in one of the slums or villages. We see patients with every sort of illness, but most frequently, HIV/AIDS related cases. The concept of the Health Centre is to use all means of economically feasible health care to improve the patients lives. Volunteers can spend 1-3 days a week here, too. If they opt for it.
If you are a homeopath or naturopath interested in helping for short- or long-term, please write us. We will accept student or experienced practitioner to come and assist. We would greatly benefit from the extra set of helping hands, and you will benefit from the clinical experience and heart-touching experiences as you bring healing to those who may not get it otherwise.
Attention: Practitioners of Acupuncture, Naturopathy, etc. We also welcome other healthcare practitioners of complementary therapies such as naturopathy, acupuncture, etc. Please write us.
