Newcastle/Gateshead Medical Volunteers (NGMV) was founded by a group of healthcare professionals from the North East of England including orthopaedic surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and physiotherapists.  


We are working in partnership with the Barzani Charity Foundation (BCF) and Nechirvan Health Aid Office in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq to provide voluntary medical care to the population of Iraq.  


The Nechirvan Health Aid Office and Barzani Charity Foundation provides social, cultural and humanitarian aid in Kurdistan to the people who need it most – without discrimination and regardless of their belief or ethnicity.  They focus on projects that help rebuild the shattered lives of the many thousands of displaced people in this devastated society.  The BCF’s campaigns target sectors that really make a difference by providing economic and financial contributions, emergency relief, educational development as well as health and social care.  


NGMV are committed to making at least 2 trips per year to delivery musculoskeletal and Orthopaedic services to local people in this area.
