Not Just Tourists - Tourists Who Make a Difference Print


Not Just Tourists is a group of volunteers who prepare suitcases full of medications and documentation for transport by tourists to countries where these medication might be in short supply.

Tourists (that would be you) can contact any of the organizations below to get more information. Generally, the travelers meet with the NJT representatives who will give the traveler a suitcase with appropriate medications and paperwork and an address for delivery. The traveler is then responsible for taking the suitcase to the destination country as part of his/her luggage and seeing that is delivered to the appropriate destination.

Travelers often find that they are able to make contact with local people and learn more about the country through this simple act of kindness.

Not Just Tourists organizations are springing up across the country. If you are interested in setting up your own, please contact Bill Howes at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
