It's really important to have a good understanding of volunteering before travel.

Volunteer ethics and terms is the main charity page which describes all of the details about volunteering from practical considerations to safeguarding and child protection. These are important to help you gain the most out of your trip and have a positive impact on the communities in Nepal. 


We encourage all members to keep a journal of their trip, however brief or in-depth - we believe that one of the strongest ways to get the most from your experiences in the long term is to record them, actively reflect on them and then build directly upon them, particularly after you return home.

Without doubt you will witness the strong links between Moving Mountains and the communities that you are placed in. As such, you will be an ambassador for Moving Mountains. During the medical camp you will not be expected to be a visiting Doctor who sees patients, although sometimes of course misunderstanding occurs, we recommend you discuss clearly with the supervisor what you can and can't do, and also make it clear to patients that they are being seen by a student and not a qualified Doctor.


Please read Adventure Alternative's blog and webpage on the ethics of a medical elective and medical volunteering.
