Help us prepare medics for when the worst happens

Crises like the war in Ukraine stretch medics to their limit. DONATE to our £1 appeal and help us, help them.

We train medics across the world in vital trauma management care

Our training saves lives and relieves the suffering of those affected by war, violence, natural disaster and healthcare poverty. We aim to improve self-reliance in the countries in which we work.
