PROFOH offers several ways to volunteer, whether in our international offices in Hamburg-Germany, Texas-United States,
Accra-Ghana, Lagos-Nigeria, Kathmandu-Nepal, etc. As long as, the volunteer is a professional in any chosen profession,
he/she can work with our assessment team, man-made or natural disasters, emergency response team, etc, in any or all
countries where we operate. A medical volunteer must have been trained and qualified to respond to surgical and
clinical interventions, care management, public health behavioral surveillance, nutrition systems development and/or
training of medical personnel. A volunteer on Water includes sanitation experts, provision of portable water, sinking
and digging of wells (both wind and solar powered) and training on simple ways to achieve hygiene and sanitation.
A volunteer in Education (Education continues to be one of the major unsolved problems in developing countries)
includes trained and qualified teachers and experts in private and public schools educational systems.
In most instances (subject to funding) volunteers, flight tickets, visas, medical Insurance accommodations and Daily
Sustenance Allowances (DSA) are provided by the organization. Non-medical volunteers are required to complete
intensive training before deployment. Duration of training depends on work experience and background.
Advocates who campaign for change serve a far reaching goal in that they bring about fundamental
changes from the inside out; it changes the person, the society, and ultimately the world. By so doing, you can single-handedly
assist to put an end to needless and preventable deaths. Some of the instances of preventable deaths are those due to mother to
child transmission of the HIV virus, untreated mosquito nets to prevent the scourge of cerebral malaria in Sub–Saharan Africa Region,
or the need for iodization of salt in West Africa to prevent goiter, which has increased over the last decade. Some of the policies and
practices that PROFOH members and campaigners are currently advocating are currently relate to governance/the fight against corruption,
TB eradication, gender equality/the education/empowerment of women and girls and access safe drinking water.
