Become an AWHPI Volunteer

Since 2003, volunteers have been the cornerstones of AWHPI. Each year, over twenty-five volunteers give their time, energy and skills to provide a wide range of free specialty services.
Gifts from our volunteer staff, members and friends send a strong message to our partners: we believe in the future of AWHPI and are willing to commit our own dollars to make that future prosperous. Simply put, your gifts make good things happen within our organization as well as the recipients that receive health care each year. We are successful because of you. Your giving shows that every gift has the power to make changes at AWHPI, and what we contribute individually combines to create a lasting impact on the lives of others. Please consider making a gift donation to your favourite project through this campaign.

The Central Role of Volunteers
AWHPI was founded and staffed entirely by dedicated volunteer physicians, nurses, pharmacists, lab technologists, medical assistants, psychologists, administrators, and receptionists. Volunteer contributions translate into hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of free services to those in need each year.
Serving global health needs at AWHPI is tremendously rewarding. Many volunteers gain professional skills in medicine and public health administration in addition to the personal satisfaction of assisting clients and making a difference in their community. Volunteer opportunities enable physicians and other licensed health professionals to donate their skills to patients in need and to mentor others preparing to enter the health field.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers work as medical assistants, medical technologists, phlebotomists, front office assistants, and administrative assistants.
AWHPI also serves as a training ground where medical residents and students enhance their clinical skills and experience the free clinic approach to providing free, nonjudgmental care. For more information about volunteer opportunities,
please call the Volunteer Coordinator at 832-949-1072.


Join a mission

Make plans today to travel with the AWHPI mission team for a twelve-day Charity Medical Mission trip to West Africa to distribute free medical and health supplies to the women and children of that region.

Our journey will begin on Wednesday, April 16 and end Tuesday, April 28, 2022.
Our staff of volunteers include physicians, (Internal Medicine, Primary care, Dentist, OB/GYN, Optician, Podiatry, cardiologist, Oncology), nurses and other professionals who are called into the healing and health ministries. Individuals, married couples, and teams are encouraged to go.

The requirement includes anyone with the burning desire to serve.
Our primary purpose is to enumerate the problem of healthcare, determine what can be done and what role AWHPI can play. We will visit areas such as Lagos State, Oshun State, Delta State, and ABUJA (Federal Capital City Territory).
