THE GREEN LION PHILIPPINES
Program Description There are many people living in the rural areas far away from the big hospitals in the cities. In the rural areas of the Philippines people go to the local healthcare centres for their health care treatments. Most of the time, these centers have to serve more people than the small group of doctors and nurses can handle. Therefore participants with a medical background who can lend a helping hand are more than welcome and greatly appreciated.
