URGENT APPEAL: VOLUNTEER ENGINEER PLACEMENT OPPORTUNITY IN UGANDA
The Amalthea Trust is seeking two volunteers to provide training in two separate projects. One engineer is needed to train engineers at The Ugandan Blood Bank in Kampala on the servicing of basic laboratory and pathology equipment, with another engineer required to Train The Trainers at a University in Ethiopia on ultrasound and anaesthesia.
Each of these courses run for two weeks in total - with a possibility to split the training into two, one-week courses if timing is an issue. The courses are due to take place mid-end July 2018.
The Trust’s work really does help to change lives for the better – providing much needed skills to communities who are in great need of reliable, properly maintained medical equipment to help deliver health care directly to those who need it most.
For more details, visit the Amalthea website and take a look at Current Projects. Whilst on the site, take a look at the Volunteering video and have a read of the feedback the Trust have had from some of their NHS engineer volunteers, it really is a life affirming experience!
