Your Donation Makes a Difference

Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) is an independent international medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, healthcare exclusion and natural or man-made disasters.

The majority of our funding comes from private donors, individuals like you, who believe that people deserve access to medical care without discrimination. We are not affiliated with any political or religious organisations.

Your donation will help ensure that our medical teams can treat patients in urgent need.
