Medical teams

AusHEAL aims to take multi-disciplinary medical teams annually to HEAL Africa Hospital in Goma, D.R.Congo to teach & train, mentor & model and resource appropriate allied health and technical staff of the hospital. AusHEAL team members are predominantly self-funded and this demonstrates their commitment to walking alongside their Congolese colleagues.

To assist out team-members, AusHEAL supports our volunteers by covering their ‘in-country’ costs. (visas, transport, accommodation) to a maximum US$1,500 per annum.

AusHEAL’s ethos is to build relationships between team members and their Congolese colleagues and to work within the Congolese culture. Monetary support of team members costs in D.R.Congo allows individual team members to make repeat visits.  Their return increases relationships and the potential to make a difference.
