Merlin is an international health charity made of over 4,500 staff members whose goal is to save lives in the world’s most disadvantaged places. Merlin takes action with healthcare, when people are overwhelmed by natural disaster, conflict or disease and request of immediate help.  
Founded in 1993 by three young friends in a spare bedroom in London, Merlin has grown to become the UK’s leading international health charity and some of the most serious humanitarian emergencies in recent history.
Their mission is to end the needless loss of life in the poorest countries due to a lack of effective health care. The charity is here to help communities with the supply of medical services for the long term including hospitals, clinics, surgeries and training for nurses and other health workers.
Merlin has worked across 50 countries, empowering communities by helping to rebuild their health infrastructure, staying put, training health workers and educating the local population about better medical care.
Each year, 98% of their team are based in the field, reaching the lives of 15 million people on average each year.
Merlin currently works in 19 countries around the world, sending medical experts to disadvantaged communities and staying to build long lasting healthcare. The organisation’s funds come from individuals and institutions.
