Volunteers at Monkey Jungle consist of two main groups
1. Health Care Professionals:
Over 45 teams of health care professional have volunteered at Monkey Jungle. The commitment usually runs for 3 to 6 days. Teams frequently stay in Sosua or Cabarete in all-inclusive hotels starting at $55 usd per person. Some rent condos or beachfront homes.
Each work day they come to MJ and start between 8-9am and finish up around 4:00pm seeing about 40 medical patients and 40-50 dental patients. Surgical teams have worked at Central Medical Center in Sosua. Teams are expected to bring replacements for consumables used and extras to help stock our clinics. Locals are welcome to come and volunteer a day or two at the clinics.
If you are a Dentist or Hygienist on vacation and want to volunteer on Saturday which is our normal clinic day, we would be thrilled to have you!
If you are an energetic and fun loving person with a kind and caring heart; one that has often thought of volunteering, or learning more about our clinic and what we do, please contact our Clinic Coordinator Linda at [email protected]
There are so many areas we could use your help in the Dental Clinic, with triage, filling out charts, sterilization, cleaning and setting up tables, translation.
We are also looking for occasional volunteers that don’t feel they can commit to every Saturday, but are interested in helping with painting, gardening, driving, translating or photography when needed.
If you have any special talents and are interested in Volunteering for a day or more please contact our manager Rob – [email protected]
Volunteering can give your life a completely new meaning! The rewards are endless in the Hugs, Smiles and Friendships you will make.
