As a charity we are committed to providing emergency care in the immediate aftermath of large and sudden onset disasters. This support is therefore often provided to the most vulnerable people of the world.
Your donations contribute significantly to the continued success of UK-Med and our ability to rapidly deploy specialist teams to assist people at a time of need. We do receive government funding to recruit, train and support the official national UK response to disasters, but there are times when a smaller independent deployment is required and it is for this that we continue to need independent funding. Your support will help us pay for much-needed medicines and equipment as well as supporting our work with colleagues in disaster-prone countries, increasing their medical and surgical skills and knowledge, and increasing their capacity to respond to disasters in their own country.
