Charity number


Established in 1974, Inter Care sends recycled surplus quality medicines, which would otherwise be incinerated, along with healthcare goods such as dressings, instruments and devices to rural health units in some of the poorest parts of rural sub-Saharan Africa. The way we work not only benefits around 130 health units in Cameroon, Ghana, Malawi, Tanzania, Sierra Leone and Zambia by providing them with vital healthcare goods, but also makes use of surplus medicines and healthcare goods from pharmaceutical companies , medical wholesalers, healthcare professionals and the general public, thereby helping to reduce waste. Last year alone we sent almost £650,000 worth of aid to our beneficiary health units.

 In 2012, the charity received the highly prestigious Queens Award for Voluntary Service in recognition of the contribution we receive from over 50 volunteers, many of whom are medically trained. This helps us to maintain low overheads and to maximise the impact we have on the lives of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable patients treated at the health units we support. These include hospitals, clinics, prisons, schools for the visually impaired and centres for the disabled and for orphaned and vulnerable children. The combined catchment population of these health units is over 11 million people.
