Partners & Grants
At MEDLIFE, our vision is a world free from the constraints of poverty. In order to bring this dream to life, it is vital that we come together with those who share our vision. By working hand in hand with our partner communities, our student Movement, and like-minded organizations, we can maximize our joint impact and boost our progress towards making this vision a reality.
Coming together in unprecedented times
Since the start of the pandemic, we have shifted our approach to address food insecurity through Community Soup Kitchens and food deliveries. Thanks to the generosity of our partner organizations, we’ve been able to reach even more families with emergency hunger relief! Read more about some of these projects by clicking the links below:

WORKING SIDE BY SIDE TO CREATE CHANGE
In addition to our COVID-19 response, MEDLIFE has partnered with a variety of organizations on other projects. Some examples include:
- An alliance with LATAM Airlines to fight against anemia in communities throughout Peru.
- A collaboration with Make-A-Wish Illinois and our partner travel company Good Life Expeditions to grant the wish of a 17-year-old cancer patient, Layan Abdo.
- Corporate volunteering with HP Peru to build a water reservoir for the community of Bellavista, in Lima.
- Partnering with Kaplan to provide discounted courses to students.
MEDLIFE has a presence on 200+ campuses across the US, Canada, the UK, and Europe. Here are some examples of ways our university partnerships have grown beyond Chapter presence:
- Birmingham City University has included our Service Learning Trips as one of their faculty-sponsored and faculty-led travel abroad programs.
- Students from Dartmouth Tuck School of Business carried out a case study on MEDLIFE, sharing their findings and recommendations with us.
- McGill University collaborated with MEDLIFE to facilitate a Field Study in Kenya about public health in East Africa led by MEDLIFE’s founder, Dr. Nick Ellis.
- UC Berkley offers a course that incorporates a MEDLIFE trip to Lima as part of the curriculum.
