Do you have a heart to work with children with additional needs, and do you want to serve God in a country which is not your own? OM Albania is in need of a physiotherapist and for people that have a heart for these children.

Start Date: January or August
Commitment Length: 1-2 years (Full Time)

In Durres, OM Albania is working with one of the state-run centres for children with disabilities where members of the church regularly take the children out of the centre on walks. This doesn't only change up the routine for the children who have little stimulation, but it also fights against the cultural stigma of Albania, that disabled children should be kept a secret.

OM Albania regularly holds meetings with these children and their families at a local church, to teach them about Jesus. This ministry also allows families to support and encourage each other, as they often struggle with poverty and discrimination.

The team help the children with counting and writing and also supports the siblings with their homework. Often, siblings feel left out as they don't get the same attention. OM Albania provide them with monthly meetings so that they can go out and have fun.

You will need:

  • A willingness to learn Albanian
  • Flexibility
  • Humility and patience
  • A love for people
  • A heart for children

Most people joining OM raise financial support towards the cost of their salaries/expenses. This is usually through gifts from home churches and other supporters. Training and support in this is provided.
