Help building a better world

We are a non-profit by Swiss Government registered organization and until today all our financial resources are spent on diabetic care in African Countries.

We help wherever we can

We are working hard to achieve better health care in multiple hospitals and communities in Multiple Countries in Africa.

Diabetic medical treatments

Since the beginning of 2018 we have been working with our team in various locations in hospitals and outside communities in The Gambia. Our goal is to give people the optimal diabetic care, provide them with the right medical treatment and the correct medication. We also organize polyclinic days and try to accommodate people with the same standard of treatment as we expect in Europe.

The Gambia Life Aid Organization

We started with a little idea and now we’ve made it possible for patients that require dialysis to receive a proper treatment. Especially Alhagie Baldeh, who is our contact person and the founder behind the idea. He had already started raising funds through contributions and travelled all the way to Senegal to purchase equipment such as dialysis catheters and consumables needed to initiate dialysis.

Medics for Humanity

Medics for Humanity (MFU) was founded in Zurich by a group of enthusiastic people and The Life Aid Organization founded by Alhagie Baldeh. We shared our strength in providing assistance to people affected by conflict and exclusions from healthcare. This cooperation gave us the possibility to expand our help within the prevention of kidney and heart diseases. Our team is made up of a group of health professionals and  assistants – bound together by our charter. Our actions are guided by medical ethics and the principles of impartiality, independence and neutrality. We are a non-profit, self-governed, member-based organization.

We work hard for better healthcare

Our main task at present is to make care available, to get it accessible and affordable to all patients in The Gambia.

Provide a proper treatment

There is a serious lack of proper treatment in The Gambia. We focus our efforts on providing proper treatments for diabetes, kidney and heart disease patients.

Train and re-train doctors

We educate people about the impact these diseases can have on their health and how to deal with it. Training nurses and doctors is a really important factor in this process.

Invest in necessary equipment

We invest in insulin and other equipment like dialysis machines and the necessary accessories. There is an absolute shortage of these machines in The Gambia but also in other countries Africa.
