Caught in Crisis

“People will start dying not from COVID-19, but from other diseases – normal diseases that we could treat.”

Doctor Ferdyoli Porcel, Paediatrician

Crises don’t stop during a pandemic. Nowhere is this clearer than, on the devastated streets of Beirut in the aftermath of the explosion, or the overcrowded Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh.

Médecins Sans Frontières teams are racing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 while maintaining lifesaving medical care for families who have been driven to the brink of disaster.

But we can only do it with your support. Because of you, we can remain independent and impartial. This means we can go where others don’t, treat people in need regardless of politics, religion or ethnicity, and focus on what we’re best at – providing expert medical care to those who need it most. Thank you.

$50 could provide 580 single use sterile syringes for a vital vaccination campaign.
$100 could buy 210 packs of ready-to-use therapeutic food for malnourished children.
$250 could pay for 400 surgical masks with face shield for our surgeons to use in an outbreak.
