Paediatric Physiotherapist 880
This development centre brings in disabled children from the countryside for intensive two-week sessions of physiotherapy and/or speech therapy. A Physiotherapist is urgently needed to fill the gap created by the long-term therapist returning home and the local trainee being on maternity leave. This post offers the opportunity to have a significant impact on the lives of families with disabled children, for whom very little is provided in the society. There is a need for someone who can train a Mongolian assistant to continue the work longer-term. At least a year's commitment would be good, with immediate start. Ideally the physiotherapist should have experience with children, but any trained therapist would really help!
