What the Mission Trip Will Be Like


Volunteer programs begin every Monday of the month and departures are also every Monday of the Month. Volunteers can choose from 1 week to 90 days (You will get a 90 day visa on entry as long as you hold a USA, EU or British Passport). The children’s hospital in Cape town is the only hospital in South Africa that is dedicated to working with children only. The children come form less privileged backgrounds and many of them are there for months in the hospital. We have a great need for volunteers to come and help assist us with: reading to them, playing with them, assisting the nurses and helping out in general within the hospital. The project runs from Monday to friday working in the hospital from 9am-3pm daily. (You dont need to be qualified to join this project) yet if you have qualifications then you will be able to work a little more hands on with the children (alongside the nurses) Please send us your qualifications so we can share it with the hospital staff before your arrival. We appreciate all volunteers, qualified and not qualified. You can choose to also join our Surfing project in the afternoons if you would like too. The surfing project involves learning to surf and teaching the less privileged children to surf. If you wish to join our Surfing project and Hospital project then please see the 2nd table below for the fees.
