OUT looking for volunteers
Are you a nurse or medical practitioner?
August 02, 2007
OUT LGBT Well-being in Pretoria are looking for Registered Nurses to volunteer in their VCT Clinic on Saturdays. They should be able to conduct pre- and post- test counselling as well as administer a rapid test. They should also be able to keep track of statistics as well as make the necessary referrals. Although these are volunteer positions, a daily allowance will be paid.
In addition, OUT is looking for a few Medical Practitioners to volunteer in their Wellness Centrre, which will operate twice a week, for two hours, in the evenings. The 'male' wellness centre services will be offered by a male medical practitioner and the 'female' wellness centre services will be offered by a female medical practitioner. The selected services include basic physical examinations, pap smears, STI diagnosis, Viral load/CD4 Counts, HIV treatment monitoring and literacy, to name but a few. Although these are volunteer positions, a travel allowance will be paid.
Should you feel enormously altruistic and want to give some of your time and expertise back to the community then contact OUT directly for more information. Contact Jacques on 012 344 5108.
Just a thought:
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us. What we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
