The Exchange

BLESS organization helps 6 villages around our camp, near Pondicherry, in Tamil Nadu state. These populations don't have access to proper sanitation or health assistance so the health problems are common, misevaluated and, specially, preventable. If you have any health related degree or experience you will be really helpful! Tasks start from hygienic habits promotion to medical consultations, or even with helping in building new toilets.
