Top 3 reasons you should volunteer abroad with MEDLIFE


Volunteering abroad can provide various benefits for the participants. Besides the great help, one can offer to communities in need. In MEDLIFE we gave the opportunity to our volunteers to develop individual skills that can help them in their professional careers.

Leadership Skills

Volunteering with MEDLIFE can greatly improve leadership skills. By participating in community projects and working with a team, our MEDLIFErs get the opportunity to develop their communication, problem-solving, and decision-making skills. One of the most important benefits of joining a Service Learning Trip is our volunteers will learn how to adapt themselves to a different environment, culturally and socially.

Volunteers also get to learn how to motivate and inspire others by taking on responsibilities and leading by example. Overall, volunteering with MEDLIFE can significantly improve one’s leadership skills through hands-on experience and real-life challenges.

Make a positive impact:

By volunteering with MEDLIFE, you will have the opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of people who struggle with poverty. Our many projects, such as the Mobile Clinics, give the opportunity for volunteers to provide quality health care services to people with a human being approach, as well as follow-up care with our patients.

Our development projects are focused on working hand-in-hand with community members. This gives us the opportunity to empower them and start getting organized for the future. Projects like stairs, greenhouses, park renovations, and school renovations, benefit thousands of people by improving their quality of life.
