MARDi - Medical Aid for Refugees and Displaced People


MARDi is an international network of healthcare professionals providing voluntary medical aid to refugees and displaced people living in refugee camps in Paris, France. We provide first aid, basic medical care and triage in the camps with hospital advocacy for issues requiring secondary care.


Today, there are almost 4,000 people living in these unofficial refugee camps, surviving in broken tents on food from volunteer groups with very little access to healthcare.


MARDi's aims 

  • To provide basic healthcare to refugees and displaced people living in poor unsanitary conditions in Paris, and to provide further support for issues requiring secondary care
  • To actively advocate for refugees and their maltreatment from the French and other European governments
