Welcome To TroppoDoc

Volunteers Make Up The Organization Of TroppoDoc.

TROPPODOCis one of the smallest Non Government Organisations (NGO) in the world, run by Dr Derek Allen.

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

Dr Derek Allen is a New Zealand doctor who has dedicated his life to helping those in need in the Developing World focusing in Indonesia, Vanuatu, Africa, India, Papua New Guinea, West Papua and in Natural Disaster Areas.

VOLUNTEERS are essential to TroppoDoc in its commitment to helping those in need.


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!

Logically, with the cost of air travel, the most practical stay is for one month or longer - but you are welcome for shorter periods.

If you are interested and/or available to volunteer, please go to the Volunteer Database page and register.This is non-binding and simply puts you 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.

TO VOLUNTEER: Please see "Volunteer" page or contact Dr. Derek Allen - see "Contact Us" page for details.
Dr Allen enjoys communicating and responding to people directly, but email access can be limited. However, he can usually be contacted by txt (sms) or phone - refer to Contact Us page .

FOR ANY QUERIES CONCERNING TROPPODOC: Please contact either Dr Derek Allen (derekallen101@gmail.com) or Margaret Thorpe (margaretthorpe1@gmail.com) or Ian Cope (ian@copeelectrical.com.au). Other contact details for them all are on the "Contact Us" page. 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 wrong information. Thank you.
