MEDLIFE stands for "Medicine, Education and Development for Low Income Families Everywhere." MEDLIFE is a global charity, currently working in South America and Africa, which seeks to improve the overall health and welfare of families and communities in need. To do this, MEDLIFE run Mobile Medical Clinics and Development Projects staffed by locals and assisted by essential student volunteers. This is where MEDLIFE Exeter comes in...

Set up in 2018, MEDLIFE Exeter is currently the UK's largest MEDLIFE society! Our main aim is to encourage Exeter students to join the movement and participate in one of MEDLIFE's Service Learning Trips in South America or Africa. These are 1 week long trips with a participation fee of $790 excluding flights. This money goes directly towards paying local practicitioners. You can be from any year and any discipline to take part - there is no need to be from a medical background. We support individuals with their fundraising targets throughout the year and co-ordinate the Exeter group in preparation for the trip.

In June 2019, we took a group of Exeter students to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania where we supported a Mobile Medical Clinic and a Development Project. Over the course of the week, 702 patients were seen who had no other access to affordable healthcare. 25 of these were placed into MEDLIFE’s follow-up care programme so that they will continue to get the care they need. We also helped to build a school library which we hope will inspire the children in their learning.

Our next Service Learning Trips will take place in 2020. We hope that you will join us in the fight for a world free from the constraints of poverty!

Lima Trip 1: 6th - 13th June

Lima Trip 2: 25th July - 2nd August
