Volunteering: a life-changing experience

Posted Posted by Nick Cook in Latest News     Comments No comments

My time in Maun volunteering as a homeopath was life changing. I have come home inspired and wanting to feel the same level of satisfaction from my work here that I encountered there.

Each day was a new and varied  experience. The main clinic is based in Maun and some days we would practise there but on many other days we travelled to  different villages to provide outreach clinics for these isolated communities. Sometimes we would practise outside under a tree, other days we would fly up to one of the safari camps to treat the staff. The work was fascinating and satisfying.  The patients we saw responded really well and I got to see homoeopathy making a real difference to peoples’ health and lives.

The work can be challenging as there are lots of new things to get used such as taking cases through a translator and driving on roads littered with cows, donkeys and goats. However I felt well supported on the Project – by Hilary (the Project Director) from England and by weekly personal supervision which is part of the support package. In Maun there are ‘friends of the Project’ who looked out for me and the 3 local trainee homoeopath/office staff were very supportive too. The accommodation I stayed in was simple but comfortable and pretty.

If you feel your work is stuck in a familiar comfortable rut and you would like to experience feeling really alive every day, and you want to make a difference, then I highly recommend this experience.  It could change your life!
