Volunteer missions

  1. 0 I'm looking for some information that has been quite elusive. I'm a registered nurse, and would like to travel to a Third World country and volunteer with a medical missions group. Most of the organizations I've found offered 1 or 2 week stints. I'm thinking of going for 6 months, since my financial situation will allow it. I'd be more inclined to travel to a Spanish-speaking country, since I know some Spanish. Does anyone have any information about organizations that are involved in this kind of work? I'd appreciate any info--

    Says they require at least a 6 month time obligation... w/ preference for those with 9-12 months.

    There are a lot of groups that would love to have long-term volunteers. I suggest starting by looking through the list here:

    I totally want to work with doctorswithoutborders also. I guess I'll have to wait several years, but I think it would be amazing, and rewarding work!
