Healthbridge Medical was founded due to the exceptional need for additional medical services in Lesvos, Greece. The epicentre of the Greek refugee crisis, Lesvos has struggled to assist and adapt to the influx of refugees. In the summer of 2019, numbers sharply increased, and the existing camps became overwhelmed. The impact of this increase in people on Lesvos' existing medical centres was major. Driven by the needs of refugees, Healthbridge Medical seeks to work with the Greek medical systems to provide urgent care to refugees in Lesvos.
