Most of the refugees trapped in Greece have either lost family through the atrocious war in their countries or been separated from them through the ongoing dire political boundaries. This means that nearly 60 000 people remain trapped in camps in Greece. Our team’s medical services therefore continue to be needed for the foreseeable future, as we continue to provide care for several camps.

We are very grateful for the help already given and now need to request for your help.  Even if you cannot help us yourself, please feel free to share this request with others who may be interested?

Who do we need?

Qualified doctors with a prescribing licence (minimum 2 years post qualification) are needed; ideally GPs, paediatricians, women’s health specialists (including contraception advice) and A&E  doctors who are prepared to help with primary care.  We would also need experienced nurses with or without prescribing licences (although it is very helpful if you do have one).

We are also looking for any medical skills: nurses, EMT,  paramedics.

We are also looking for Pharmacist.


We are also short on medical volunteers for the following weeks in 2018:
