The crucial medical services Kitrinos provides at the camps in Greece would not be possible without the support and goodwill of medical personnel like you. We are writing to you today to ask for your help. Due to a last minute cancellation, we are in desperate need of senior doctors in the camps.  If you cannot help us yourself, please feel free to share this request with others who may be interested.

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. From the beginning of August, this will include the notorious Softex Camp.

Who do we need?

Qualified doctors with a prescribing licence (minimum 3 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 are short on medical volunteers for the following weeks in 2017:

We provide medical care to camps near Thessaloniki:

  • Softex
  • Mobile medical services as needed


What can we offer you?

Due to the shortage of time, we would be pleased to offer a contribution towards your return flights. If you are able to stay for the full duration requested (minimum 4 weeks), we may also be able to offer a small stipend towards living expenses.


We can offer subsidised accommodation (10 EURO per night for first 14 nights) in our volunteer apartment in Paleokastro and if you stay longer than two weeks, you may stay free of charge.

In exceptional circumstances,  we may be able to offer other reimbursements,  please email your requests to admin@kitrinoshealthcare.com.

For more information please see our website and facebook.

If you have any enquiries email us: admin@kitrinoshealthcare.com.
