How to Volunteer?
All individuals interested in volunteering for CDRS projects in Pakistan should contact CDRS as soon as possible to discuss their skills and available dates for working at the CDRS office or field medical facilities. Due to limited funding, CDRS cannot pay for international or domestic air travel.
We have opportunities available throughout the year for project management related work. Interns will get valuable experience with practical situations involving field work and interaction with people from different backgrounds and cultures. Interns will gain valuable experience regarding administrative and management work in an effective charitable organization. Interns are required for the main office in Islamabad and at CDRS Project locations in many areas of Pakistan. Internships may lead to employment or recommendation to other potential employers.
Other Important Info
Accommodations, food and transportation will be provided to field volunteers. Volunteers should be aware that electricity shortages and blackouts are a common occurrence. Some limited cell phone service is available in the remote areas where we work and internet access is usually available as well.
Foreign volunteers should bring two copies of their passport and visa as well as a copy of immunization records. Medical staff should bring: stethoscope, personal medical kit, copy of medical license and/or credentials. Medications, supplies and equipment are provided, however, some items may be in short supply from time to time. We do and appreciate and accept donations of medicines and medical supplies.
