The Manali Medical Aid Project (MMAP) is a charitable initiative founded in 2007 by two University of Queensland medical students – James English and Juergen Landmann.
Since then, MMAP selects 4 first year medical students annually to form the Management Committee, who is responsible for coordinating fundraising events and raising awareness for the project before completing their first year medical elective at the Lady Willingdon Hospital.
MMAP aims to contribute back to the Lady Willingdon Hospital by providing financial support and medical equipments through community fundraising in Brisbane.
All proceeds raised by the students goes directly to the Lady Willingdon Hospital. Medical students involved in this project take independent financial responsibility for both administrative tasks and travel arrangements to Manali, ensuring that all donations directly benefit the Lady Willingdon Hospital and the Manali community.
