Welcome To TroppoDoc

Volunteers Make Up The Organization Of TroppoDoc

TroppoDoc is one of the smallest Non Government Organisations (NGO) in the world and is run by Dr Derek Allen.

Dr Derek relies however on an army of volunteers, including nurses, surgeons, public health enthusiasts, dentists, medical and nursing students and anyone who is willing to lend a hand to get medical and health services to some of the poorest and healthcare-deprived populations in the world.

VOLUNTEERSare essential to TroppoDoc in its commitment to helping those in need. Check us out on this Youtube video.


As a Volunteer you will be warmly welcomed for any length of time. Volunteer for two weeks, one month, or six weeks - you will probably find that you will want to stay even longer!

Nursing, medical and midwife students. This could be a unique opportunity for one of your community placement.

If you consider becoming a volunteer at TroppoDoc, you can register on the Volunteer Database page. By doing so, you will not be committing yourself but rather just put in contact with the TroppoDoc Team.
For volunteers who may not be able to travel but still would like to help, TroppoDoc is always in need of sponsorship for urgent projects.

FOR ANY QUERIES: Please go to the Contact Us page. In that section you will find details on whom is authorised to give information regarding any of the TroppoDoc team missions. Dr Derek can also be reached directly however internet access can often be limited in some of the areas he works in. We suggest that you go through the administrative team in the first instance.

ADVISORY NOTICE TO PROSPECTIVE AND RETURNING VOLUNTEERS: Please ignore requests from other people to contact them directly re organising placements on TroppoDoc team missions, as they do not have any authority and may have the wrong information. All TroppoDoc volunteers MUST register on the TroppoDoc website, or will not be considered part of the TroppoDoc team.

Make sure you follow us on Facebook with the only official page TROPPODOC. We are also on Instagram and Twitter.

We look forward to hearing from you!!!
