How to participate?


Our boats do medical work in the rivers of the Amazon, therefore, we are opening volunteering opportunities only for health professionals.


Characteristics of a volunteer

 
The idea of living on a boat in the Amazonian rivers may seem the most beautiful and easy thing. But the reality is that if you accept the challenge of being a volunteer in the Luzeiro boats, you can expect many challenges and hard work!
You will spend 20 days in a boat, living with people you don´t know, without having much privacy, eating very simply, feeling a lot of heat and sleeping in a bed (or hammock) that is much less comfortable than yours.
It is also important to remember that you will be part of a team. In addition to exercising your profession, you will have to be flexible to sometimes help in cleaning the boat and preparing meals.
But we do not want to discourage you. It is precisely in circumstances like these that we learn many things. We just want to prepare you to know that the challenges are great. We prefer not to speak about the good parts because it is difficult to put into words the feeling we have when we stop chasing our own interests in order to serve our neighbor. Come and then tell us how it went!
