MSF

Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF)

Medecins Sans Frontieres, known in English as Doctors Without Borders, was founded in 1971 by a group of French physicians in response to the unparalleled famine and starvation in the embattled West African region of Biafra.   Initially, MSF, worked exclusively as an emergency relief organization, sending quick response teams to disaster stricken areas.  Its first mission was to the Managua, Nicaragua in 1972, after an earthquake ravaged the city and left upwards of thirty thousand people dead.  Quickly, though, MSF took on a more proactive role, establishing semi-permanent missions in war torn areas where their services were needed on a long-term basis.  Throughout the 1970’s, MSF teams were present in refugee camps on the Thai-Cambodian border and in active battle zones such as Beirut and Vietnam.  In the 1980’s and 90’s, MSF could be found in Sudan, Afghanistan, Liberia, Bosnia and Rwanda.

Today, MSF has swelled into a worldwide relief organization with over 26,000 doctors, nurses and logistical experts constantly at work in over sixty countries around the world.
Their mission remains unchanged:  To provide quality medical care to people caught in crisis regardless of race, religion or political affiliation.  MSF operates independently of any political, military, or religious agendas.
