World Medicine - Acupuncture in Action - offers relief from pain and trauma where it is most needed, regardless of race, religion, politics or gender in order to strengthen and support local communities.
The journey began in 2005 when a team of 21 complementary therapists went out to help victims of the Asian Tsunami.
Today, we are more active than ever through UK and internationally based projects, raising funds for current and future work, recruiting and developing new volunteers and providing further opportunities for senior practitioners to deepen their experience.
Our longest running international programme is in Chaparda, Gujarat, India, where we have run an annual clinic for many years. Based at the Jay Ambe Hospital we have regularly taken a team of acupuncturists and translators, treating thousands of local people over the years and building lasting friendships with our host charity and helpers.
This year, however, we were unable to go due to the pandemic so we're going to make a virtual journey to see them instead! We're walking from our HQ in Yorkshire, England all the way to the door of the Jay Ambe hospital - a distance of 5,686 miles.
Feel free to join one of our teams and take part yourself, or support them with a donation, which will be used to develop the work of World Medicine in the UK and internationally.
Thank you for your support and wish us luck!
