MedEntry's 2023 Charity Partners
11 months ago by Chris
There’s a saying that, ‘Deeds of giving are the very foundations of the world’. MedEntry has a commitment to deeds of giving to disadvantaged groups, with a focus on health and education. Every year, the MedEntry Foundation partners with a different charity organisation in each country in which we operate, to help support their vital work.
MedEntry is proud to have been associated with some of the world’s most respected not-for-profit organisations. In total, we’ve donated over €150,000 to various charities, helping them to carry out their vital work.

How you can help
MedEntry raises funds to support our charity partners by partnering with our students. Upon enrolment, students have the opportunity to make a donation. Each student donation is matched by MedEntry, euro for euro.
MedEntry would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our wonderful students who have donated to charities over the past 20 years. May these deeds of giving continue to be the very foundations of the world.
