Hospital Needs

Current hospital needs include:

Volunteers to assist with teaching at the Kompiam International School
We take children from kindergarten through to Grade 12. Formal teaching qualifications would not be necessary as the school uses the ACE system which allows parents and helpers to function as monitors.

Volunteers to help with building and maintenance
Currently the hospital is in the midst of a major renovation program. Anyone with building or handyman skills would be very, very welcome over the next 2-3 years.

Director of Nursing 

The EBHS has been without a Director of Nursing since December 2018. This is one of our key leadership positions with oversight of all nursing and community health workers in the organisation.

Village Health Volunteer Program Coordinator
The Village Health Volunteer program seeks to train village women in basic health education according to the national curriculum for VHVs. We have trained over 100 VHV’s so far but the program has stalled for want of a trained health worker to oversee the running.


We are needing ongoing funding for building work, not just in Kompiam, but also in many of our health centres and aid posts, where facilities and housing are still extremely basic.
