 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.

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.
