Greetings from Medical Sailing Ministries

Thank you for your interest in the work of MSM and PCV Health.

Whilst we will not be using the yacht this year, we continue to assist the PCV Health program in a range of areas, including:

1.  Recruiting dental volunteers to operate the PCV Health Dental Clinic for 1-2 weeks each month

2.  Recruiting and operating three Medical Outreach Missions, (May-August 2014) incorporating dental, optical and medical services, to the islands of Ambrym, Pentecost & Maewo.  Transport for these missions will be by local plane, 4WD and small coastal boats.


Volunteers Required

Full details of this year’s mission can be found in the 2014 PCV Health Volunteers Manual

The three missions will be conducted at the following times:

TEAM 1      22 May–5 June (Ambrym)
TEAM 2      3–17 July   (Pentecost)
TEAM 3      14–28 August   (Maewo)

Each team will comprise local, Ni-Van Health Care Workers, but will also require the following volunteers:

Co-ordinator x 1
Dentist x 2

Dental Nurses, x 2

Doctor x 1
Optometrist x 1


What’s it like ?

To learn more about what it’s like to volunteer,  a PCV Clinic Handbook has been prepared

In addition, here are some diary entries from past volunteers that convey more of the “personal reflection” side of things:

Again, thank you for your interest and we welcome any comments of questions you might have.  If you or a friend would like to know more about volunteering, we’d also love to hear from you
All the best
