GBF in Thiotte
GBF organizes an annual mission to Thiotte in southeastern Haiti at a local health centre. GBF missions last for roughly one week, including short cultural excursions.
Volunteers can also participate in this project independent of GBF scheduled missions at any time of the year to support the continuity of the program.
Volunteers work at the same health centre in Thiotte throughout the mission.
Acupuncturists will work primarily with a team of other acupuncturists. Acupuncturists will have the chance to see returning patients and follow-up on treatments.
The patient flow is organized by the health centre and structured according to the centre’s working hours.
Travel to Thiotte requires several hours over hilly and unpaved routes. Thiotte is situated at an altitude of roughly 1,000 metres. Depending on the time of the year, the weather can be chilly and most facilities are not equipped with heating or hot water.
Languages required for mission: French and/or English
