MedLend is a non-profit organization which provides free healthcare services and educational opportunities for people, especially women and children, in the some of the world’s poorest countries. Since 2006, MedLend has been organizing medical missions which provide surgeries as well as exchange programs for doctors and nurses. The surgical teams travel to developing nations as volunteer medical professionals. Funds are raised for the staff travel, but also for the medical equipment and supplies which are donated to the local hospitals. Additionally, MedLend trains local medical staff with new techniques to strengthen the sustainability of the local healthcare systems.
