Volunteer Delegations

 

We believe that as Israelis and doctors it is our duty to lend a hand to improve the lives of people in need, not only in our community, but wherever they are in the world.

Devin and Adi  (June - October 2015)

Our names are Devin and Adi, both physicians and newly married. We both studied medicine at Ben Gurion University in Beer Sheva Israel, Adi in the Israeli program and Devin in the international program in collaboration with Columbia University.

Adi completed her internship at Ichilov Medical Center in Tel Aviv. During her medical studies she has been involved in many health education projects. Devin has a master's of public health from the University of Colorado and has volunteered in Nepal and founded a community health program in Beer Sheva Israel that continues to serve families of the Negev.

 

In Kiboga, we got a chance to fulfill our beliefs and passions by pursuing our dream to work in areas of poor medical access and education in Sub-Saharan Africa. We feel that we found the project we were looking for, a project making a direct impact to the Kiboga community in a sustainable and culturally sensitive manner.

Reut and Eitan  (March 2014 - March 2015)

Our names are Eitan and Reut, we are both medical doctors and married. We believe in the importance of community development and volunteer work. Along the years each of us has developed and been part of many projects in Israel, including the establishment of a medical aid project to chronically ill elderly patients in “LATET” organization, management of a voluntary program providing free SAT preparation courses to at-risk youth in return for voluntary activity, with “Aharai!” organization, voluntary work in health education and more. Our dream to volunteer as medical doctors in Africa sparked a few years back when Reut volunteered in an orphanage in Kenya and in a medical clinic in Uganda.

 

We volunteered in Kiboga for one year during 2014-2015. We were happy to find a welcoming community who embraced us and our son. Despite a lot of frustration and limited resources, we feel that our work in Uganda was meaningful and made a large impact on the local community, who is in dire need of doctors and health education.
