In Syria, Haiti, Ukraine, and more than 70 countries around the world, your unrestricted, tax-deductible donations allow Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams to respond to disasters at a moment's notice with lifesaving care, medical supplies, and support for local hospitals and partners.
Because of the unrestricted giving that allows us to pivot our resources at critical moments, MSF teams were able to respond within minutes to the massive earthquakes that struck Syria on February 6. In just the first week, we treated 7,600 people injured in the quakes and quickly stood up mobile clinics which have held 5,667 patient consultations. In Syria, we have distributed more than 30,000 relief items and 27 tons of medical supplies.
At the core of our work is a commitment to independence and impartiality. MSF-USA takes no government funding and relies on unrestricted funds from private donors like you. This means that when an emergency strikes, we don't have to write grants or ask for earmarked donations before we respond—we can act fast.
Help us save lives in Syria, Haiti, Ukraine, and more than 70 other countries where the needs are greatest by making an unrestricted, tax-deductible gift now.
