Increase your impact

When you fundraise for Medair, you make an even bigger difference by engaging your family, friends and communities to take action together for people in need.

“Sixteen years ago, we learned that Medair was supporting women in South Sudan. Seeing Medair's sincere commitment, we felt the desire to support them. The organisation deeply moved us due to the significance of their work, providing invaluable assistance to women living in impoverished and forgotten regions.”
