HealthCare Volunteer's Criteria for Partnering with Local NGOs/Non-profits in Direct Patient Care Programs
Potential Partners of HealthCare Volunteer must meet the following requirements:
1. Use of volunteering fees should be as transparent to the volunteer as possible. Volunteer organization must include a breakdown of volunteering fees and the intended purpose of that money.
For example, $1000 volunteer fees should be broken down as follows:
a. $500 - Housing (6 months)
b. $250 - Meals (6 months)
c. $250 - Equipment
2. Tourist / entertainment activities cannot be charged as mandatory, up-front fees to the volunteer unless the volunteer explicitly agrees and requests to pay these fees. The volunteer should be given the option of paying this fee upon his / her arrival to the volunteering site if he / she decides to take part in the entertainment activities.
3. Volunteer organizations should be either registered NGOs, Non-profits, Government Entities or such and abide by local laws, operate at standard of care and exercise the highest ethical conduct.
