In a world full of injustice, inequality and violence, our obligation to secure the self-evident, and that is the right to live with dignity, has become an urgent calling.
Our main goal is to cover basic human needs, such as housing, nutrition and medical care.
Medical Intervention was established in Athens on 8 March 2004. It is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization under the distinctive name: Medical Intervention (Medin).
We provide humanitarian aid in emergencies and development opportunities to populations of developing countries and to people within Greece, in order to tackle severe humanitarian issues and to support them socially and financially; as well as to contribute to the reduction of poverty.
We have always been in places where needs are urgent: in Azerbaijan, Serbia, Albania, but also in Greece, close to vulnerable people and groups.
Our main targets, specifically mentioned in our articles of association, are:
Provision of medical, social, educational services, to populations or social groups, regardless of race, religion, or political beliefs, whose current needs are not covered by existing structures or organizations, in emergency, disasters, or lingering problems, always in cooperation with the people of concern.
Research and identification of social and structural situations which affect negatively certain populations or social groups, either physically or psychologically, along with the intervention to resolve them, either by directly providing services and education or by investing institutionally.
The organization’s activities are based on mutual collaboration with both scientific, state, European and international organizations, as well as individuals, provided they do not contravene the ideology and aims of the organization and that these activities will never, even indirectly, become for-profit.
Our criteria for intervention are strictly to meet health and other basic human needs.
The organization’s action remains independent of local and international political interests and is not involved in any disputes.
