The Floating Doctors is a medical
mission - a not for profit, volunteer based organisation. We have worked in Haiti
, and are currently based in Panama
developing an ongoing operation here in preparation for a Haiti
mission in 2014. Please visit our website at Floating Doctors
to see what we do before contacting us, we can offer a place in a volunteer team devoted to improving the health
of the local people in Panama
, accommodation and a food
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 several smaller power boats and RIBs' that we use frequently and access to a number of other power craft. An ability to drive all or any of these would be a benefit!
We are looking for people that are self starters, there are many challenges working here in Panama! We especially need engineers/mechanics, electricians, carpenters, general boat
builders and boat handy folks to work
with the team based in the marina with the re-fits.
We can offer accommodation on board at the marina, and a food
allowance of $50 per week, Stipends are available for select volunteers based on skills. We definitely have our work
cut out here, but the results will impact a lot of people that need help. We have opportunities to join the medical
teams on clinics in the local areas - once a week.
We are not political or religious, just about medical and public health
assistance. Its really a great team and the results here are very rewarding, we look forwards to hearing from you.
