Welcome to The MENTOR Initiative, a humanitarian organisation
working to save lives and reduce suffering from tropical diseases.

We act in some of the world’s most austere and vulnerable communities – which are often devastated and forgotten.
Regardless of race, creed or nationality, MENTOR strives to prevent and control diseases in populations at greatest risk of suffering and death.

The MENTOR Initiative responds to global emergencies, then remains for as long as it takes to help people recover from a crisis –
working side by side with communities, health workers and health authorities to leave a lasting impact.
