What is good health? Usually we think of physical symptoms, but being healthy also includes the social, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of life. We want to see people living in wholeness in each of these areas.

Are you a health worker, male or female, or do you have a medical background? Come and join our team! We are looking for nurses, midwifes, doctors and HIV-trainers who are willing to teach basic health lessons. We teach about good nutrition, hygiene, massage, first aid, sexual education, pregnancy and child health, infectious diseases like hepatitis, HIV and sexual transmitted diseases, or other topics that communities ask for.

You will be working with a local organization which has been operating for more than ten years in this region.

In our communities people often don’t take care of themselves until they get sick. They then face expensive medical bills, miss school or miss work, all of which cause stress to the whole family. Often good medical care is not available or difficult to access for people living in rural areas. The local organizations teach preventative health to reduce many of these problems before they even start. They help families and individuals learn how to take simple steps to prevent illness. This is done through Health Education Lessons in homes and schools, providing printed resources in local languages.

Live opportunities are unsalaried. Most people joining OM have to raise financial support to cover their living expenses, usually through gifts from home churches and other supporters.

Interested?
