Volunteer and Community

Volunteer

In Mundo Sano we are convinced that citizen participation and community involvement promote the actions and projects carried out by the Foundation to help improve the lives of people affected by neglected diseases, those that affect 1,600 million people in the world, and that we can also define as diseases of poverty.

In 2019 we decided to implement “Somos Mundo Sano”, a volunteer program that includes different forms of participation: social volunteers and corporate volunteering.

The participation spaces of our program cover different fields of action, depending on the profile, time availability and geographical location of the volunteer:

How can you join?

⦁ Patient support program: guiding and accompanying, as a referent volunteer, patients with Chagas disease during the process of diagnosis and treatment.
⦁ Volunteer in Mundo Sano venues: collaborating and participating in programmatic and awareness raising actions that we carry out in the offices of Añatuya (Santiago del Estero), Puerto Iguazú (Misiones), Clorinda (Formosa), Tartagal (Salta) and Pampa del Indio (Chaco) and in the projects we conduct in Latin America and Spain.
⦁ Ambassador of Mundo Sano: multiplying messages of prevention, awareness and education in the community.
⦁ Corporate volunteering: participating with your company in volunteering activities in the field.

COMMUNITY

For more than 25 years we have developed awareness and training actions aimed at the
progress of the communities where we carry out our work for the prevention of neglected
diseases.

The constant work in the territory allowed us to consolidate relationships based on mutual
recognition and respect, dialogue and trust. For this reason, we are convinced that through
the articulation of joint work, sharing information and our work methodology, the
community can play a leading role in the care of their health for the prevention of these
diseases.

EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS

Handwashing is the most effective and economical practice of preventing communicable diseases. Since
2016, Mundo Sano implements an event with the participation of schools in different locations with the
aim of promoting the habit of hand hygiene and how to do it correctly.

We invite you to join this initiative by making available the materials and protocol of the event with the
games we carry out.

For more information or virtual / telephone advice write to us: comunidad@mundosano.org, we will
get in touch.
