The Floating Doctors is a medical
mission (not for profit, volunteer based organisation) traveling by 76' 119-ton ship to provide medical
relief. We have worked in Haiti
, and are currently based in Panama
developing an ongoing operation here in preparation for a Haiti
mission in 2014. To find out more you can visit our website at Doctors.com
We have 2 sailing yachts, both are currently in re-fit. The larger vessel was used for Hati relief by Dr Ben and the team and is requiring major overhall, which we are progressing. The smaller sailing boat
is a 55 ft ketch
which was donated to us 1 year ago, its currently in the final stages of re-fit and we hope to have her back in operation in 2 months. We have 3 smaller power boats and dingys that we use frequently and access to a number of other power craft. An ability to drive these would also be a benefit!
We are looking for people that are self starters, there are many challenges working here in Panama!
We can offer accommodation on board, which is fairly basic but the marina we are based at is great, and a food
allowance of $50 per week, we have opportunities to join the medical teams on clinics in the local areas - once a week. We definitely have our work
cut out here, but the results will impact a lot of people that need help.
If you think you may like to join our efforts please can i ask you to contact us at the following email
address : email@example.com
not through the cruisers website.
Its really a great team and the results here are amazing, we look forwards to hearing from you.
Please note that we can only offer a weekly food allowance of $50, as we are a not for profit organisation.
