Volunteer with us
Volunteers are an essential part of the Kitrinos team, and we are always on the lookout for keen people who are willing to help. We are in need of medical and non-medical volunteers who are ideally able to volunteer for a minimum of 1 month. We particularly welcome long-term and returning volunteers, who will know how we operate and will be able to focus on contributing as much as possible.
We are currently looking for doctors, nurses, pharmacists and van drivers. Please note: you must have at least 1 year post-graduation experience in order to volunteer in a medical capacity.
It is important for all prospective volunteers to note that due to the nature of humanitarian work in refugee camps, the field is unpredictable and needs regularly change, therefore flexibility and understanding is ideal.
Accommodation is available free of charge at the moment.
To get some insight into what it's like to volunteer with us, take a look at our volunteer testimonials and #VolunteerDiaries,
or you can read this more in-depth piece written by one of our previous volunteers, Dr. Kat, about her time in Camp Moria, Lesvos. For further queries, please visit our faq page or email us at email@example.com.
We recommend that you also take a look at our projects page, which summarises our current medical and non-medical projects.

As health care professionals we are used to the privilege of being trusted upon by our patients. I found that to be no different working in the refugee camps of Greece. I was often overwhelmed with insights I would gain into the personal lives and journeys of our patients, as they felt comfortable sharing delicate stories, memories and incidents that had shaped their lives to this day. From my time volunteering, I gained much more than I ever gave, a new perspective on ethics, healthcare and humanity
Working as a doctor with Kitrinos Healthcare and living with the team for 6 weeks was a blast. Of course I can't promise you the exact group of excellent people I enjoyed but "greatness attracts greatness" as they say and if you are thinking of volunteering you must be pretty great yourself.
The work is engaging and varied, be prepared for an equal amount of non clinical work... Have fun
