Current Volunteer Opportunities (Unpaid Positions)
Nurse needed for Less than 1 month
Opportunity Description: Beginning April 16, Global DIRT (Disaster Immediate Response Team) will be running a new mobile medical clinic program. The program is designed to provide deworming, immunizations, and basic health care for at-risk areas of Port-au-Prince, including tent camps, orphanages, and neighborhoods still effected by the January 2010 earthquake. The program will utilize teams of 5-10 providers (1-2 physicians, 4-6 nurses, 1-2 emt's/paramedics). These teams will provide mobile clinics aproximately every other day, alternating with shifts in a clinical setting to assist local hospitals with staffing. Sundays are an offday/travel day where teams will have an opportunity to go to the beach or view Port-au-Prince. Global DIRT will provide lodging, food (hot breakfast and dinner), translators, logistics (water, drivers, supplies), and utilize our new 45 foot long medical clinic bus. The costs of the volunteer opportunity is $25 per day (to cover logistics/food costs and make program self sustainable). volunteers are encouraged but not required to bring additional medical supplies down for their trip. For more information or to schedule a trip now contact Sarah Grosh, the Country Medical Director at SGrosh@GlobalDIRT.org or fill out a volunteer application at www.GlobalDIRT.org/volunteer. Thank you for continuing to help us help Haiti!

Mission Statement: (See Web Site For Updated Information)
The mission of the Global Disaster Immediate Response Team (DIRT) is to fill the void that exists between the time of a disaster occurrence and that of the traditional response effort. The organization has operated based on this premise since its creation following the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Global DIRT utilizes the small unit leadership model of special forces, combining specialists from a range of fields including special rescue fire departments, emergency medical services, trauma physicians and nurses, and the military, to respond to short term emergencies and the long term ramifications of disasters.
