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.

Thank you for getting involved and fundraising for Doctors Without Borders!
