This is a shared home where you will be staying with other volunteers and guests from across the world, so you will never be on your own in your new environment.

It is important you are prepared and comfortable to travel around town, this is a demanding role that requires dedication.

Important VISA & Permit Information

You will be required to pay a for a VISA for voluntary work assignment.

Please enquire for details.

Where do my fees go?

Most of your fees are spent locally. Fees ensure you have above standard accommodation, that you have a personal coordinator picking you up at the airport, orientating you and you have a coordinator day to day and your program is planned and facilitated specifically for you, to match your skills and get you to provide the very best to those that need you. 

Do any fees go directly to the projects?

​Yes they do. We make a charitable donation on your behalf to your project placement. This is not mandatory. We do this as we know how challenging it can be for our partners to host, supervise and very often teach volunteers. We want our partners to know they are valued and respected for their time as best we can. 

What insurance should I get?

​You should ensure you're adequately covered by comprehensive travel insurance for the duration of your stay.. For our students please check with your employers/university/college or national employment body on indemnity.

What vaccinations should I get? 

You will receive a full handbook and consultation on exactly what is required.

Where can I get cheap flights?

​There are dozens of great websites online for cheap flights. It is advisable to get your flights as early as possible to be able to logistically plan your trip. 

Is Africa safe for me to travel alone? Do I need to be with other volunteers?

​Regardless of whether you're volunteering on a clinical mission, you're still a tourist. Forward planning is key to protecting yourself from risk as you would anywhere in the world. As a group or a solo traveller from abroad, you will attract attention but, you will also have a great support system in your volunteer coordinators, fellow travellers/volunteers and ​supervisors. It's important to try and be conscientious of your new surroundings and respect and follow local customs as much as possible and insure yourself from any possible risks. 

Africa is a large continent with every country varying greatly in local culture, customs, rules and regulations. Research your destination as much as possible and ask as many questions as possible. We would never place you at risk or in harm's way, however it is important you take ownership of your journey and behave responsibly. ​

Please note:

We can also transfer you to the airport on your departure date for an additional fee. Please mention this in your application!

 Medi Trip - Company Profile

 Medi Trip is a limited company registered in the United Kingdom. The company was founded in November 2014 by current Director Pearl Sakoane (Nogi) (Chief Executive Officer). Pearl is a qualified nurse registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (UK), who graduated from King's College London and holds a Psychology Bachelors (with honours) degree from the University of Greenwich, London. She's worked in General Nursing, as a Research Nurse/Assistant on a research team with Kings College London, in a mental health rehabilitation facility and as a maternity care assistant along 10 years in the health care system in the UK. She also interned in Tanzania as a student and returned with the idea of establishing Medi Trip, going on to win the national Edith Cavell Leadership Award in 2015, featured in the Telegraph newspaper amongst other publications. 

Medi Trip - Volunteer Programs

Medi Trip specialises in bespoke volunteer programs for healthcare professionals and individuals passionate about making a real difference. We aim to facilitate volunteering experiences in healthcare facilities and within the community. The aim is to create the opportunity for individuals from different countries to learn, share knowledge of best practice, discuss areas of mutual concern and exchange ideas Medi Trip offer volunteer placements to doctors, nurses, students, healthcare/medical assistants and allied healthcare professionals. Some professionals want to share their expertise and experience, others choose to learn in an environment completely removed from their regular area of practice. 

The main goal is to share knowledge amongst both local and foreign professionals. Meds Trip's volunteers have the opportunity to understand the socioeconomic and health implications of poverty within a developing nation. They experience first hand the care of vulnerable patients within a healthcare system with limited resources. 

We are different from other volunteer companies in that Medi Trip specifically seek specialists or people with big ideas. Whether you want to simply use your clinical skills in different environment, help set up something new or want to raise awareness in a particular area of interest, we can help you realise your vision. Our purpose is to open up new possibilities for brilliant people. 

At Medi Trip we are distinguished in being able to use our healthcare experience and expertise to pick the most suitable settings for our professional volunteers to experience. When you volunteer with Medi Trip, your volunteer placement would have been chosen specifically to suit your area of interest. Each of our placements are carefully assessed and selected for suitability to our professional volunteers, as well as how much contribution goes into the local health and social welfare.
