RESCATE AMBAR (“Amber Rescue”) was founded in 2003 as a nonprofit organization to provide 24-7 emergency medical services to the city of Puerto Plata on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic.
In February 2017, Trek Medics partnered with Rescate Ambar by providing them with access to the Beacon emergency dispatching platform as well as support for their operations.
Today, Rescate Ambar is working to expand their services to meet the growing demand and they’re hoping you can help them out!
You’re invited to:
This a great opportunity to support a busy volunteer service on the pristine coastline of a major Caribbean port city. (*If a Spanish-English translator is needed, a $50/night donation is required)
How does it work?
This opportunity is an open, independent invitation from Rescate Amber and is not sponsored or coordinated by Trek Medics. Trek Medics staff and volunteers do not provide medical care in the countries where we work without local accreditation.
If you choose to visit one of our partners of your own accord, please donate cash directly to the Manager.
Our partners are emergency medical service providers (not tour operators) and every day is a struggle to maintain their service. Offering your skills and training is kind, but won’t do much to help them stock their ambulance or fill their gas tank.
If you arrange to visit them, please donate directly to them!
