Edric’s Legacy

Dr Edric Baker established a health care project in rural Bangladesh many years ago. It's a project for the poor by the poor that has empowered local people to serve one another through basic health care. Though Edric passed away earlier this year, his legacy continues at the  Kailakuri Health Care Project.

The project is currently searching for volunteers to fill a number of roles:

  • Someone who can help with English communications, writing updates and liaising with the project's supporters around the world.

  • A nurse practitioner who can act as a consultant for the mother-child village health programme.

  • A medical doctor who can act as a consultant for paramedics and internee doctors.


The preference is for volunteers to be able to stay for at least three months. They are expected to fund their visa and return airfare, though the project can provide free accommodation and meals. An interpreter can also be provided.

If you are interested in any of these roles, email office@nzcms.org.nz and we can send through further information.
