Act4Africa

Act4Africa is a UK charity working in Uganda, Tanzania and Malawi to reduce poverty through the delivery of health education and gender equality programmes. We work closely with busy general hospitals in Uganda, Tanzania and Malawi and arrange tailor-made medical elective trips for student doctors. We have close relationships with a number of hospitals, and students also have the option to work alongside our health education teams as they deliver workshops and to assist at community health clinics in rural areas. We also arrange placements for nurses, midwives and qualified doctors. As Act4Africa is a registered UK charity students can fundraise to cover the costs of their elective and be assured that any surplus funds will go directly into the communities in which they will be working.

Mission Direct works with partners all over the world to bring practical help, hope and change to the lives of many men, women and children.

Currently supporting projects in 11 countries, we open the door to anyone wanting the life-changing experience of going on a short-term mission trip. From Africa to Asia, South America to the Caribbean and on to Europe, our projects support a wide range of need - from disabled children marginalized by their communities, homes for street boys living hand-to-mouth each day, and saving women out of FMG; to building schools for children with no access to education and hospitals for people without sufficient healthcare.

A typical trip with us will support our partner projects in the morning (usually a build - though no qualification necessary!) followed by visits to help at other local community projects. Towards the end of the trip, you'll get the opportunity to take some well-deserved R&R - exploring local wonders, witnessing incredible wildlife, trekking through rainforest or laying on the beach. We will coordinate every aspect of your trip for you, from flights, visas and transport to accommodation, food and transfers.

Your two-week mission trip will change the lives of many forever - including your own.

We welcome interest from clinicians who would like to give a few hours of their time in the UK to make short teaching videos as much of our training is via e-learning.

Our mission is to use medicine to open doors for direct evangelism in areas where the Gospel is either unheard or corrupted with unbiblical doctrine ( traditional beliefs/prosperity gospel teaching etc).

BMS World Mission is a Christian mission organisation, working in around 34 countries on four continents. We believe in holistic mission, an approach that stays true to the Christian call to evangelisation without neglecting the duty to take care of the physical needs of those in need. BMS works through long, medium and short-term workers, teams and volunteers, as well as a large number of supported national partner workers around the world, providing people, funding, training and expertise in the core areas of our work: Church planting, Development, Disaster relief, Education, Health, Leadership and Justice.

As a sending agency of the Baptist Church in the UK, medical elective applicants should be connected to a Baptist church either as their home or university church. Priority will be given to those students exploring a call to longer term overseas service.
