Urgent – two volunteer audiologists needed for ear camp in Nepal this April

Posted on: January 29, 2013

Can you help?

EarCampNepal1Ear Aid Nepal are urgently looking for one or two volunteer audiologists for a charitable ear camp in Nepal this April:

“The International Nepal Fellowship has run these ear camps in remote areas of Nepal twice a year since 1993. We have an excellent local Nepali team and we also take 4 otologists, anaesthetists, theatre nurses and usually 3 audiologists from abroad. We travel to Kathmandu then fly on into western Nepal, finishing the journey to a small district hospital by Land rover. I am an ENT consultant / otologist in Hereford and Worcester and I am the main organiser of volunteers and the regular surgeon on these ear camps . We have had many volunteer audiologists from Britain and other countries. Our next camp is for two weeks in April 2013, we usually take 3 audiologists with us but two had to cancel recently.

Our next camp is in April 2013, leaving the UK on the evening of Friday 5th and returning by Sunday 21st, though some volunteers stay longer to go sight seeing and trekking (we can arrange that if you would like).
We generally book volunteers a year or more in advance but we have two spaces that have fallen vacant for this April, so we are in URGENT need of at least one replacement. Volunteers are self funding (many volunteers have raised their own fares with local events), the experience is amazing and valuable. We can easily put you in touch with previous volunteers and there is a lot of information on our website.

EarCampNepal2PLEASE consider this, it will be a very special and worthwhile chance.
Between us we saw over 1200 patients on our most recent camp in November 2012. Of these 150 had surgery and a record 200 were fitted with hearing aids.
we have staff and people with local language skills to help.”

Hi I am a paed aud in Australia and I am avail in April. Can you send me more details.

Hi, It is wonderful work that u all have been doing. Children Hospital for eye ear and rehabilitation services ,15 mins from heart of KTM , has come up, with joint initiatives of Gov of Nepal and BP Eye Foundation (NGO). It works in neuro sensory disability. Eye and Ear being its entry point. We have complete hearing evaluation set up along with state of art theater and rehab services. We mainly have out door activities reaching to the community since most patient cannot afford to reach the apex center.
It would be nice if you all could visit the center next time u r here. Please also mention if our staff could be of any assistance since our organization and yours is working in similar grounds.
