WHAT we do

Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) delivers emergency medical assistance to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, natural disaster, or exclusion from health care in nearly 70 countries. On any one day, 27,000 doctors, nurses, logisticians, water-and-sanitation experts, administrators, and other qualified professionals can be found providing medical care in international teams made up of local MSF aid workers and their colleagues from around the world.

WHO we are

Founded in 1971 by a group of French doctors and journalists who witnessed the famine in Biafra, Nigeria, Médecins Sans Frontières, (MSF) or Doctors without Borders, is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organization that provides food and delivers medical care and emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, healthcare exclusion and natural or man-made disasters.

WHY we do it

It’s hard to imagine always feeling hungry or never being able to see a doctor when you get sick. These seem like basic needs, yet so many go without them every day. In the short-term, Doctors Without Borders plays a role in saving lives, giving treatment, and taking people’s health needs and worries seriously, because most often, they have no other option. These teams of doctors wish to share their gifts with those who might otherwise perish without food and medical care.
