Join our Refugee Solidarity Group – we’re meeting 7pm on 7th June

We’re welcoming new members to our Refugee Solidarity Group. Join our next meeting on Wednesday 7th June at 7pm at the Medact office – The Grayston Centre, 28 Charles Square London N1 6HT.  Please contact Feryal Awan, if you would like to attend. 

The agenda for the evening includes:

  1. Upcoming volunteer trip to Calais
  2. Doctors of the World ‘Stop Sharing’ campaign (Medact is supporting Doctor of the World’s campaign to stop the Home Office from accessing migrant patients’ personal information) 
  3. Organising the next ‘Right to Healthcare’ training (designed to train health professionals to help migrants access healthcare)
  4. Sharing plans and actions for the upcoming months

The Refugee Solidarity Group develops projects to defend access to health care rights for refugees and migrants, and inform civil society about existing rights and barriers to accessing healthcare. It is a friendly group of healthcare professionals and students, welcoming new members to participate as much as time allows. Activities fall under three main domains: Advocacy, Education and Action.

The Refugee Solidarity Group is part of a wider movement the Health Through Peace Movement. Please contact us if you could like to be involved in Medact’s work in this area.
