Doctors Of The World
Rinkit.com is proud to contribute to the efforts of Doctors of the World UK, a charity that is helping to bring health care to underserved populations both here in the UK and abroad. Founded in 1998, the group is a member of the Médecins du Monde, which has been providing routine and emergency healthcare services around the world since 1980.
As the UK branch of Médecins du Monde, Doctors of the World UK assists with more than 300 projects spread across 70 countries. They deliver services with a team of 3,000 volunteers, including medical professionals. The organisation has four main areas of focus:
Responding to natural disasters and international conflicts by dispatching volunteers to deliver emergency healthcare in areas that have been ravished by war, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis and other events. Providing services to migrants and refugees who arrive in London and would ordinarily not have access to routine medical care. Assisting with healthcare programmes that provide care for women and girls in areas where they would be unlikely to receive quality prenatal care and reproductive health services. Educating at-risk individuals on disease prevention methods to reduce the spread of HIV and AIDS, Hepatitis C and Ebola
