The NGO was founded in 2018 by French general practitioner, who, having worked with displaced people in Greece for several years, decided to start a clinic for the refugees arriving on the island of Samos. Run by a team of around 20 medics and non-medics that consisted of volunteers from all over the world, our Samos clinic treated over 80,000 patients between 2018 and 2021. The clinic operated on 6 days per week without interruption, with a second, temporary clinic in operation during Covid-19 lockdowns. After the move of the Samos camp from Vathy to a closed and more isolated camp, Med'EqualiTeam ended its activities on the island in October 2021. In June 2022, Med'EqualiTeam started a new project in Poland support Ukrainian refugees and provide relief to the Polish healthcare system.
Med’EqualiTeam is a non-profit organisation and is entirely dependent on crowdfunding, donations and support from other NGOs.
