Fundraising for Doctors Without Borders is a great way to bring your community together while helping provide medical care to those who need it most.
There are countless ways to host a fundraiser that’s the perfect fit for your imagination and your community such as bake-offs, house parties, and movie screenings.
At Doctors Without Borders, more than 80% of our doctors, nurses, and logisticians work in their home countries and local communities. Your fundraising efforts help us train health workers in several countries and invest in local health infrastructure to meet healthcare needs in a more sustainable, community-driven way.
Examples of the impact you can make:
$500 raised = 2 treatments to cure patients of Hepatitis C
$2,000 raised = 2 C-section kits to provide our doctors and nurses the instruments needed to perform uncomplicated Caesarean sections for patients in childbirth
$5,000 raised = 3 multipurpose tents for use such as a hospital, feeding center, or dispensary fitting 12 people
About Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)
MSF is an independent international organization that offers medical humanitarian assistance to people based solely on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender, or political affiliation. Over the past five decades, MSF has grown from a group of a few hundred volunteers to an international movement, providing over 10 million medical consultations in more than 70 countries every year. Our core values of humanitarianism, independence, neutrality, and impartiality continue to drive our work in providing life-saving aid to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters.
