« Med’EqualiTeam – caring for people on the move »is a French NGO created in July 2018. It is based on a non-profit organisation structure and is running on donations coming from crowfunding and personal savings.
The aim of this NGO is to provide free health care to displaced populations, who wouldn’t otherwise have access to it due to external barriers. These barriers include financial, social, and logistical obstacles. The care should be given with respect, dignity and confidentiality, with respect of medical and general ethics.
Our first project is on Samos Island, in Greece, where more than 3500 refugees are cramped in one camp made for 650 persons (Vathy camp). Only one Greek doctor is present, making the situation even worse. We opened a center 700m from the camp where people can come and get free medical consultations and treatment.
