Providing Medicine, Education and Development for Low Income Families Everywhere.
MEDLIFE is an international NGO that provides access to medicine, education, and development in impoverished communities, with the ultimate goal of sustainably improving quality of life. MEDLIFE develops relationships with residents of the areas they work in to ensure that aid remains continuous and projects are geared towards each community’s unique needs. With the help of student volunteers, medical professionals hired in Peru, Ecuador, Tanzania, and India set up mobile clinics in low-income areas. At Queen’s, our club has two main purposes. The first is to recruit and prepare students for volunteer service trips to Peru, Ecuador, Tanzania, and/or India. The second is to raise money for the MEDLIFE Fund, which supports follow-up medical care and community development projects. In addition, we work to raise awareness about issues of global health and development.
