Could you help Mission Rabies?

Join them for a two-week program in April/May 2018 across Blantyre City and Monkey Bay, on the southern shore of Lake Malawi in Africa. The mega drive includes working across static point and mobile dog vaccination clinics, as well as providing life-saving rabies education work.

Volunteers will help us to cover 70% of the dog population in the areas that we work, using our state-of-the-art smartphone app to collect vital vaccination and dog population data and ensure that our work is scientifically robust. Working alongside an experienced local team, you'll use your skills at the heart of the local communities, as well as having the opportunity to relax by the ‘Lake of Stars’.

  • Block 2 - 16 days: 3/5/2018 -19/5/2018.
