How do we spend your donation?
Médecins Sans Frontières is an independent humanitarian medical aid organisation, committed to providing medical aid wherever it is needed. MSF sends volunteer medical and non-medical staff to help people living in crisis.
“When someone points a gun at you and asks ‘who sent you?’ I can answer that it was people who care. This can mean the difference between life and death” MSF logistics specialist Steve Hide.
MSF relies on private donations not only to fund its work in places such as Zimbabwe, DRC and Myanmar, but also to maintain its neutrality and to guarantee access to places where other organisations may not be able to go.
As an organisation, we try our utmost to make sure that your donations are spent on saving lives rather than on administration and management costs. In 2005, MSF spent 82% directly on field work; 6% on admin and management; and 12% on fundraising.
- Your donations allow us to battle epidemics, rehabilitate hospitals and clinics, carry out vaccination campaigns, perform emergency surgery, and running feeding centres for malnourished children.
- They enable us to treat patients with infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, sleeping sickness and HIV/AIDS and provide medical and psychological care to marginalized groups such as street children.
- They make it possible for us to construct wells, provide clean drinking water and shelter.
