About Doctors Without Borders
in 1971, Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders is the world's
leading independent international medical relief organisation. Your support will
help us deliver urgent medical care to people in more than 70 countries around
the world facing precarious conditions due to armed conflict, natural disasters,
epidemics, and famines.
For more than 30 years, we have been providing medical help to people caught in many kinds of catastrophes: armed conflicts, natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes, epidemics of disease, and famines. All these situations call for rapid response with specialized medical and logistical help. We are renowned for our quick response and efficient, effective work in the toughest emergencies. Beyond the drama of the acute crisis, we also intervene in times that call for a less urgent type of action, for instance, in chronic refugees situations, areas of chronic instability, and in periods following a conflict or disaster. The action we take comes in multiple forms:
We observe impartiality in the name of medical ethics and the right to humanitarian assistance. To ensure this independence, an important part of our funding for projects comes from donations from the public, as well as from corporations and foundations. Additional funding comes from national governments and international institutions, such as the European Community and various United Nations agencies.
In carrying out humanitarian assistance, we act as witnesses and will speak out, in private or in public, about the plights of the populations in danger for whom we work. In doing so, we seek to alleviate human suffering, to protect life and health, and to restore and insure respect for human beings and their fundamental human rights.
