4) Volunteer with Us
IMA is currently seeking licensed , experienced clinicians and logisticians interested in joining our small team of highly trained professionals.  Most importantly, we are in need of volunteers to join our US support team and help out with stateside logistics and fundraising.  See details below.

We are Not Afraid


At present IMA is a small organization with a relatively small budget and we are focused on stretching those

dollars in order to provide quality care to a maximum number of patients in West Africa.  At this stage of our

operation we will be deploying a minimal number of foreign personnel to West Africa.

We are seeking Stateside Volunteers. This is our area of greatest need.

Stateside Volunteers:

If you have a potentially useful skill (website design, video design, nonprofit admin experience, fundraising, advertising, etc) and would like to volunteer with us, or if you would like to use your social network to help fundraise, please email an expression of interest to, with a subject line of "STATESIDE EXPRESSION OF INTEREST".  By volunteering as little as an hour a week, you can make your contribution to the Ebola response and development efforts in Africa!

We are seeking expressions of interest for deployment to Sierra Leone in 2015:

These are unpaid, volunteer positions. As IMA moves forward, and prepares for a post Ebola Sierra Leone we are seeking caring, dedicated volunteers. All travel, room, and food will be provided. Applicants should be available to deploy for at least 3 months and be comfortable living and working in an austere, tropical environment. IMA's insurance covers all costs of medical evacuation if that should be required.

Healthcare Professionals:  

Applicants MUST be a  licensed medical professional with at least 2 years experience (RN or EMT-P or higher) AND have experience providing medical care and/or medical training in the developing world. Please send a cover letter and resume to, with a subject line of "MEDICAL DEPLOYMENT EXPRESSION OF INTEREST".

Other Deployed Personnel:

We will be utilizing a very small number of non-medical personnel for positions such as public health education, training, and logistics.  In order to be considered, applicants must have overseas work experience in the developing world, preferably in disaster relief or development.

Please send a cover letter and resume to mail@im-aid with a subject line of "GENERAL DEPLOYMENT EXPRESSION OF INTEREST".
