International Disaster Response Volunteers - Non-Medical

Closing date

Our Need

Medical Teams International’s Humanitarian Response activities are designed to provide a rapid and coordinated response to the most vulnerable populations in the world during and after an emergency. During an emergency, we deploy teams of highly trained professionals to support communities affected by disaster. In order to mobilize quickly, we require all volunteers on the Roster to have completed all application, recruitment, and on-boarding training materials before deploying on a team with us. Using this pre-vetted roster helps us to be one of the first agencies on the scene, bringing healing swiftly and efficiently.

You Can Help

Join us in responding to disasters where the needs are urgent, where we have access, and where together, our resources can bring healing. We value both the medical and operational expertise that you can bring to this work around the world. Together, we can be a lifesaving difference. Because every person matters. To God and to us.
