World Medicine is a registered UK charity providing acupuncture to people around the world suffering the effects of trauma, disaster or poverty.

LATEST UPDATES: 25 June  - See below for exciting news about 'Kiltwalk' Fundraising - please support us by joining our team of walkers, or by sponsoring a walker. ALSO see our latest Blog from Catherine Watkins about volunteering in India; and see our News & Events page where we remember friends we have recently sadly lost and give  other updates...

We are absolutely thrilled to share with you the news that the brilliant kiltwalk organisers are giving fundraisers the opportunity to walk a “virtual“ kiltwalk under the strapline ”Alone but Together“. This will take place the weekend of the 3rd of July and again the funds raised by ourselves will be increased by a massive 50% by Sir Tom Hunter.

World Medicine volunteers ( and family members) have already galvanised themselves into action and we have an active fundraising page for you to access if you would like to support us. So far we are a team of 8 and feel free to join us!

The idea is that each of us will plan a route from our own homes and will choose a distance to complete in order to challenge ourselves and raise funds.

The kiltwalk will still very much support this process and will send us our home pack including completion certificates etc.

We are really excited and motivated by this opportunity and will be taking videos and photos of our respective journeys to mark our efforts.

Thanks for all your help - Emma


World Medicine - Acupuncture in Action -  offers humanitarian aid and training 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 in offering practitioner training, overseas and UK based programmes, recruiting volunteers, and raising funds for current and future projects.
