MSF is an international medical humanitarian organisation that is also private and not for profit. Your support allows MSF to provide medical aid whenever and wherever it is needed.

Eighty-six percent of every pound you donate is spent on our programmes. We try our utmost to make sure that your donations are spent on saving lives rather than on administration and management costs.
