Story

I am joing Volunteer Medics to travel and volunteer in the village of Msitu wa Tembo in Tanzania. 


Our work will include assisting in providing a medical clinic, improving the building and undertaking training with local staff. Msitu wa Tembo has no drinkable water supply, extremely limited provision of equipment and much of the healthcare provision is undertaken by local volunteers. 

VM are a group of Paramedics, Ambulance personnel, fellow health care professionals, family and friends. Many of the original founders of our group have been volunteering in developing countries, fundraising and raising awareness of some of the challenges that are faced in Africa and Asia, amongst others, for over 10 years.

As a group of friends, mostly Paramedics, VM came together in 2016 to work on our first group project in Cameroon. This work involved assisting in the construction of the building of a health centre, as well as working alongside local medical staff in it. It soon became obvious to all  that a number of our colleagues had wanted to do something similar. With an amazing amount of support from the general public Volunteer Medics was set up as a Charity to provide a quality volunteering programme with the Ambulance Service, associated health care professionals and friends in mind.
