Pro bono publico is a phrase resulting from Latin meaning "for the public good". The term is generally used to describe professional work undertaken voluntarily

To elaborate a bit more on the answer above, it means to provide professional services without charging professional fees, e.g. a medical doctor running a free clinic, lawyers providing free legal advice to poor families or at family-dispute mediation centres. It can also mean overseas volunteer work like engineering or architectural services for NGOs like Red Cross or to help build an orphanage for the local countries--Gin-san 13:49, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
