What is it about?

Our association is a unique volunteer initiative of medical students who are not afraid to break out of social stereotypes and go to the place where others do not want to go. Our main goal is to come in the role of medics to the reality of the social environment of homeless people (reception centers, the street). Our activity is based on streetwork, patient listening, non-judgmental communication, acceptance, empathy, bringing hope, dignity, equality and high-quality medical treatment and consultation. We also educate the general public. We develop perception and responsibility in public.
