Medical Response Team to Shepherd Islands


NYCM has been tasked with the medical response for the Shepherd Islands, a group of six islands in the Shefa province. Our team is composed of 2 MD’s with extensive global and emergency medicine background, 1 emergency medicine PA, 2 surgical PA’s, an NP midwife that has extensive international background, and 2 veteran medics. We are responsible for mobile medical clinics, vaccination campaigns, health education and malnutrition screening.

Donate Now

NYCM has put medical volunteers into the field to provide life saving medical care for approximately $80 a day.  This means that on average we can medically intervene in someones life for $4.  We think this is a remarkable number.  When you realize how important $4 can be, efficiency becomes a core value.

You can feel confident knowing that 90 cents of every dollar donated supports NYC Medics disaster relief and humanitarian aid programs.
