Did you know that some countries around the world lack the healthcare resources and education needed to live long and happy lives? Underdeveloped countries all over the world don’t have access to everyday essentials such as food, clean water, toothbrushes, and transportation.

We are looking for passionate members who will help organize events, volunteer, be active on social media, and take part in fun challenges to help fundraise. By joining MedLife you will make long-lasting connections and unforgettable memories.
