On the seventh day of donating…
The majority of the non-profits I’ve donated to so far have been local. Today, I’m going for a non-profit that provides services around the world: Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).
Our medical teams act fast to save people’s lives in conflict zones, natural disasters and epidemics. We go where we are needed most.https://www.doctorswithoutborders.ca/content/about-us
Founded in 1971, MSF provides medical care as an independent, impartial organization. Some of their recent work includes providing services for:
- the Ebola epidemic in West Africa
- conflicts in Syria, Yemen, South Sudan, Afghanistan, Myanmar, and Ukraine
- migrants attempting to reach Europe via the Mediterranean Sea
Goodness knows there’s more than enough conflicts, disasters, and epidemics happening – and they will continue to happen. An organization like MSF provides valuable services to people in dire need.
