We do not take funds from businesses working in industries that are in conflict with our humanitarian goals and values.
Support from individuals and companies really matters to MSF. It means we don't need to take money from governments, allowing us to remain independent, act quickly and go where the need is greatest.
For example, it meant that we were one of the first organisations to respond to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, and could swiftly scale up our operations when the disease spread.
It meant we could respond within hours to the devastating typhoon in the Philippines, and within minutes when the earthquake struck in Haiti (because we were already working there). Without the generous support of companies and individuals this would not have been possible.
We focus on building long-term and bespoke relationships with companies. By working with us on an ongoing basis, you can see the real impact of your support and allow us to plan for emergencies and react quickly when disaster strikes.
How your donations are spent
Hear from our partners
"In recent years the decisions around where to donate and when in response to humanitarian crises have become increasing difficult when immediate response is required. This year we gave MSF an unrestricted donation on the understanding that they would use their expertise as an NGO in the field to direct funding to where the need is greatest.
"Through our partnership we trust MSF to use our donation responsibly and, in return, MSF send us regular and up to date information that we can share so that our people know how they are responding as a crisis unfolds."
