THE EHA VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCE.
EHA mission volunteers are always pleasantly surprised by the lushness and beauty that surrounds them in rural Ethiopia. They are greeted by the golden sunrise at Lake Langano before they start each service day.
Clinic service days are busy, with more than 1,500 patients being seen for primary care needs and being screened for surgeries.
A number of clinical rotations and public health days are spent at the local hospital providing higher levels of outpatient and inpatient care. Volunteers also provide community health services at Gode Health center and the refugee camp
at Bishaan Guracha.
The picturesque drive up into the hinterlands of Gode Mountain is punctuated by cheers and waves, children waving and calling out their warm welcome.
EHA Robotics and Summer School days are fun-filled and action-packed with friendly competition and group activities for students K-8. Our mission teams grow in size year after year, and many of our EHA Alumni join us on multiple mission trips.
While all these activities are rewarding
and truly make use of everyone’s skills
and talents, EHA volunteers report
that what they receive from their participation in these missions is
much more than their financial,
or professional contributions.

Our reach extends from rural village to shantytown to developing city in the Southern Oromia region of Ethiopia. We engage our local counterparts through meaningful transfer of knowledge and work together to invest in people and resources to improve the communities we serve.
