Volunteer Needed

WHI is looking for volunteers to staff USNS Comfort Medical ship in 2020

World Hope is looking for licensed medical professionals to volunteer for any potentially planned 2020 USNS Comfort Mission(s).

USNS Comfort & World Hope Seeking Volunteers

About the Mission

In 2018 and 2019, World Hope International sent volunteers, each serving 7-10 days over a 6 month time in various countries in the Caribbean, Central American, and South America.  They provided eye care, medical care, and surgeries to thousands of people including hundreds of children.   

The USNS Comfort visits a number of countries in the region. As soon as the maneuvering schedule is released, we will slot volunteers into specific mission tours.

How to Volunteer

To prepare for any potential USNS Comfort mission in 2020, we are looking for interested volunteers that can be called to serve if the US Navy makes a formal announcement about a 2020 mission including the type of medical expertise.   If you would like to be a WHI volunteer on the USNS Comfort Mission, contact Susan Park, Short Term Team Trip Logistics Coordinator (susanpark@worldhope.org) with any questions.

Know Before You Go

You will need to have passports with more than six months remaining and a background check will be conducted. 

We will provide you with a form to fill out. We need to provide the US Navy volunteer applications and credentials to the US Navy. The Navy will then let us know who from our team they will accept aboard.
