Thank you for visiting FFC's fundraising page, and joining us to support the lifesaving mission of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)!
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an independent international medical humanitarian organization that provides aid to people in some 60 countries whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters.
We are raising funds and awareness of the humanitarian crisis and the catastrophic effect of the ongoing war in Yemen on its most vulnerable group - its children. Your donation will be put to work immediately to deliver urgent medical care including treatment for malnutrition, emergency surgery, and lifesaving vaccinations for those in need in Yemen.
"MSF and the limited number of other aid organizations on the ground in Yemen can’t respond to the massive needs alone. The collapse of the health system will continue without adequate and immediate support, and could lead to a resurgence of cholera, the spread of other epidemics such as diphtheria and measles, growing rates of malnutrition, and further difficulties in treating non-communicable diseases. The non-payment of civil servants’ salaries by the government since August 2016 also remains a key issue, especially in the health sector. Health facilities lack qualified staff who often seek other income opportunities." (MSF)
Thank you for your support and for getting involved. Every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated (and Tax deductible!)! You can learn more about its work by visiting www.doctorswithoutborders.org.
