Join a Medical Mission to Yemen

Beginning next year, Yemen Aid will coordinate a medical mission of volunteer doctors to Yemen annually. Specifically, Yemen Aid will coordinate visas, permits and assignments with the Yemen Embassy, the Yemen Ministry of Public Health and Population, and other government agencies on behalf of doctors. Doctors will travel to, within and from Yemen, currently a conflict zone, at their own risk and expense*. Yemen Aid is not responsible for any and all claims that may occur as a result of a medical mission. Yemen Aid operates independently of any political or military agenda, observes neutrality, and provides impartial care delivered on the basis of need alone.
