Year of Gifting Week 15
DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS
With all our recent natural disasters
and so many undernourished and war torn people in the world, it's good to know that there is an
organization that addresses the medical needs in places that really need health
care and compassion. This week Drs. Without
Borders is our charity of the week, their humanitarian work was recognized with
the Nobel Peace Prize. Our support of a
minimum of $3-10.00 will provide care to children and families who are in
desperate need of treatment.
History & Principles
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans
Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization created
by doctors and journalists in France in 1971.
Today, MSF provides aid in more than 60
countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or
catastrophe, primarily due to armed
epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion
from health care,
MSF provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need. MSF reserves
the right to speak out to bring attention to neglected crises, to challenge
inadequacies or abuse of the aid system, and to advocate for improved medical
treatments and protocols. In 1999, MSF
received the Nobel Peace Prize
