Rokys - our partners

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:

In addition to our COVID-19 response, MEDLIFE has partnered with a variety of organizations on other projects. Some examples include:


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.


If you’re a business or corporate interested in exploring partnership opportunities, we invite you to contact us today. Here are some ideas:

  • Provide Grant Funding
  • Organize Corporate Volunteering
  • Support Food Deliveries

We’d like to thank all of our amazing partner organizations for supporting our efforts to bring healthcare, education, and a safe home to low income-communities. We’re lucky to have you as part of the MEDLIFE Movement!

Not only was I able to participate in a week long Mobile Clinic, shadowing doctors of all types of specialties including pharmacy, dentistry, gynecology, and more, but I was also able to learn about the culture and visit incredible places.

One thing that I really loved about this trip was that MEDLIFE made sure that the volunteers got an understanding of the complexity of issues that lead to underprivileged people in communities outside of the main city

Whether it was basketball with the local kids, assisting the doctors, talking with families, building washrooms, holding babies, or spending time with the people who were on the SLT with me, this was an amazing opportunity that I would do over and over again.

As an aspiring physician, MEDLIFE motivated me to further continue my goal of becoming a doctor. In fact, I enjoyed the Tanzania Service Learning Trip so much that I decided to go on another trip to Cusco, Peru.
