Medical Missions

Medical Mission

PLEASE NOTE: due to the pandemic situation, all travel and missions to Sri Lanka are on hold.

The next Medical Mission will likely cover the following locations:  

Galle · Yala · Batticaloa / Pasikudah · Dambulla · Colombo

Given the joys and successes experienced by all in past trips, we will open our arms to new attendees.  We will be in need of diabetes educators (student-level welcomed), ophthalmologists and optometrists.

All are welcome to inquire as we also need medical generalists and specialists, allied health professionals, non-medical support and translator/interpreters.

Our work will include:

  • Ongoing medical education at tertiary medical centres and regional hospitals in Southern and Central Sri Lanka
  • Resource provision (spectacles, hospital supplies, medication) in regional health services
  • Diabetes education and screening
  • Visits to community health centres, schools and orphanages


If you have skills or experience in delivering healthcare, a connection to Sri Lanka or are just keen to get involved in our work, please contact us at 

Please note that volunteers pay their own expenses (airfares, local transport, accommodation and food).
