Vine Trust is an international interdenominational volunteering charity which seeks to enable volunteers to make a real and significant difference to some of the poorest children and communities in the world. We welcome people from all backgrounds who share our ethos of caring and our belief that whilst we can’t help everyone we can all help someone.
Healthcare, children and education have been key priorities as we build the capacity of our local partners to meet local needs. Currently our Amazon Hope Medical Programme provides a healthcare service for over 100,000 patients annually in Peru through our two medical ships, with further expansion planned for 2012. Alongside this, we plan to replicate our Amazon Hope healthcare model on Lake Victoria, Tanzania by 2013, with the aim of establishing a healthcare service for isolated communities in this area and reaching a further 100,000 people who are in need of access to basic healthcare services.
