Our staff frequently quote the following as reasons they are motivated to work for Medair:

  • contribute to a greater purpose
  • help the world’s most vulnerable
  • work in a professional humanitarian organisation
  • work in a Christian faith-based NGO that shares my values
  • work in an international team environment
