Mission trips as a non-medical volunteer …. Think you don’t have a skill set that can help on a mission trip? You are wrong! Just because you are not a health provider does not mean you have nothing to offer on mission trips! There is much more than just seeing and treating patients on these trips. Health education, triage, pharmacy, and social services are all aspects which you may find yourself doing. There is no way the mission work can proceed without these services! Often volunteers may find themselves helping out in villages as well aiding in community development. Home repairs, building homes, aiding in agricultural practices, and helping out in community planning are more examples of tasks which a volunteer may find themselves involved in on these trips. Bottom line: everyone has something to offer on these trips, and your help is definitely needed!
