Volunteering at JHAH

Volunteers at JHAH can make a real difference. We have a variety of volunteering roles, helping make patients’ and visitors’ time with us a little easier. If you are over 18, please get in touch if you would like to donate your time and skills to support a variety of activities to benefit patients, their families and our staff, in accordance with JHAH policies. We very much appreciate the support that our volunteers provide.

Our volunteer services started in the community in the late 1960s, with a few wives of employees volunteering in different areas, including at our hospital. By 1982, five expatriates were officially running the program, which mostly involved helping to comfort children. We are now delighted to have 200 registered volunteers working with us in four separate volunteer programs.
