Leigh Daynes

Executive Director

Doctors of the World UK

Met with Alex van Someren


Doctors of the World UK provides healthcare to vulnerable people, wherever we're needed most.

We are part of the global Médecins du Monde network, which delivers over 300 projects in more than 70 countries through 3,000 volunteers.

Our vision is of a world in which vulnerable people affected by war, natural disasters, disease, hunger, poverty or exclusion get the healthcare they need regardless of income or status.

Through our health programmes and advocacy we work to ensure excluded people overcome barriers to healthcare.

Since opening in the UK in 1998, we've raised more than £8 million for overseas programmes, helped more than 7,000 service users here and fought for healthcare as a human right for all.

Listen to Leigh explain what Doctors of the World do in this short video.
