THE PROJECT

This large public hospital in Quito gives medical treatment to children aged 0 to 15 years old from all over Ecuador. As it is a public hospital, most of the children who are treated here come from poor families. Given the fact that some children come from far away, the hospital offers the possibility of housing and food for one parent. The option is for them to either stay in the same room as their child or sometimes to stay in a separate room. Unfortunately, they have a lack of funding therefore food and space is limited and the social workers decide which parent is allowed to stay with the child.


YOUR ROLE AS A VOLUNTEER

Volunteers may be asked to play with the children, visit children in specified areas that cannot move or walk by themselves, talk to the parents, teach English, or even to provide support for educational activities. Volunteers are expected to work Monday till Friday from between four to eight hours a day, in consultation with a coordinator in the hospital.


WHAT THE PROJECT NEEDS

To work at this project volunteers must have a basic/intermediate level of Spanish, compassion, willing to work with sick and handicapped children, willing to take initiative and show creativity, and a hard working attitude. We ask that volunteers commit to a period of no less than 4 weeks with this project.
