    International Medical Corps Since 1984, International Medical Corps has helped tens of millions of people in over 70 countries, delivering emergency relief and training valued at more than $2 billion.

    Current Active Countries: Afghanistan Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic (CAR), Chad, Darfur, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Greece, Haiti, Indonesia, Iraq, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Mali, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, Yemen, Zimbabwe
  • International Medical Corps is widely recognized as a pre-eminent first responder with a global reach, delivering humanitarian relief to individuals and communities in need for more than three decades. Such work depends on trained, experienced personnel, and we maintain an active roster of experts with skills in emergency response operations.

  • International Medical Corps also builds self-reliance by helping prepare communities through training programs for local staff so they can respond better to future disasters. Working with communities, we develop emergency systems that cover the spectrum from household to national-level in order to reduce the impact of future disasters and, in the long-term, possibly prevent them.
  • Emergency Response Volunteers
    International Medical Corps' emergency response team works to minimize the loss of life and alleviate the suffering of disaster-affected populations across the globe. Our volunteer focus during this devastating time is the provision of life-saving emergency health services, primary health care, public health, and emergency nutrition. International Medical Corps is looking for highly trained medical staff to add to our emergency response roster, which requires that volunteers be willing to deploy rapidly—usually within 72 hours—and for 2–8 weeks. (Preference is given to those able to deploy for longer durations.) In most instances, volunteers will be required to pay for their own flights, but will receive a food allowance for each day spent in the field, shared housing, and emergency medical evacuation insurance.

    All Hands Volunteers – Rebuilding Hope Active Projects
  • Louisiana Flood Response
  • Fiji Cyclone Response
  • South Carolina Flood Recovery
  • Nepal Earthquake Recovery
  • RESPOND
    We respond to the needs of communities impacted by the immediate devastation from natural disasters by engaging and leveraging volunteers, partner organizations and local communities to help homeowners by engaging in activities like "mucking and gutting" after a flood, "rubbling" after an earthquake, or safe demolition for buildings that are dangerous.

    RECOVER
    We work together with communities to meet their longer term needs by rebuilding the basic "hubs" of a community, including homes, schools, day care facilities and community centers.

    RENEW
    We become part of the fabric of the communities we serve. As we do so, we uncover new ways that we can serve and encourage our volunteers to meet these needs where feasible. Projects have included weekly movie nights for kids in Malawi to offset the devastation with smiles and laughter, holding weekly English tutoring sessions in the Philippines or hosting a Thanksgiving dinner for hundreds of flood victims in Detroit.

    All Hands provides positive and productive volunteer opportunities, assisting communities affected by natural disaster. Come help us as we muck, gut, construct, sanitize, demolish and repair homes, schools and hospitals around the world. Not to mention all the other amazing stuff we’ve done — education and training programs, fundraising initiatives, tree planting, well building and more! No previous experience or special skills required, just a willingness to jump in, work hard and help out.
    • Age 18 years or older ONLY
