International Medical Corps

The fourth major group that has been welcoming of volunteering paramedics is the International Medical Corps. This group is based out of the United Kingdom, specifically London. They are primarily a group of medical professionals and humanitarian emergency relief responders who are sent all around the world in order to help those who need medical attention but do not have the money or access to obtain it. They aim for a group of young professionals who have a growing passion for global health. If you believe this describes you, you can visit their website at https://www.internationalmedicalcorps.org.uk/volunteer


Volunteering Abroad 

Our final example is the Volunteering Abroad program, which gives people of all fields and experiences the chance to volunteer their time and experience to those in need all around the world. One of the major volunteer locations looking for paramedics is Lusaka, Zambia. This African country has a large population of people who need medical attention due to HIV and AIDS, but there is also a great deal of poverty. Those living in poverty rarely have the proper access to the medical care that they need.
