Making A Difference
Here at Kalinga Eye Hospital, we are always grateful for volunteers willing to come share in our desire to bring high-quality and affordable eye care to everyone. There are two main ways volunteers participate in the efforts of Kalinga.
Volunteer at The Kalinga Eye Hospital!
The Kalinga Eye Hospital and Research Centre! Participate in a high-quality and high-impact volunteering program with one of Kalinga's prime partners, Unite for Sight!
Every month, the KEHRC hosts volunteers from Unite For Sight. Volunteers fulfill a unique role at KEHRC as entrepreneurial volunteers-they develop their own projects and programs in tandem with the hospitalís activities. Examples of projects that have been undertaken by UFS volunteers at the KEHRC include:
In addition to these projects, volunteers at the KEHRC can travel to outreach camps, watch surgeries, and participate in clinical services.
Volunteer at Kalinga Eye Hospital
Volunteers are a greatly appreciated resource for the hospital, but the experience has proven to be equally beneficial for the individual participating. Volunteering offers you the opportunity to showcase your ideas and talents, while giving KEH the opportunity to learn from you. It is also an incredible chance for you to immerse yourself in the local culture. During your stay, you will gain perspective, insight, and the satisfaction of helping others and working side-by-side with locals in a truly cross-cultural environment.
