CHARITY OF THE MONTH - DECEMBER 2016

We bid goodbye to 2016 with a truly amazing charity for December, Medecins sans Frontieres (MSF) or Doctors Without Borders.

Founded in 1971, MSF is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare. MSF offers assistance to people based on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.

MSF's healthcare personnel and other staff currently work in 69 countries worldwide, including Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Chad and Libya. In 2015 alone, they have treated over 2 million patients for malaria, rescued and assisted over 23,000 migrants and refugees at sea and assisted in over 200,000 births.

The following photos show the amazing work they do, there are more photos and further information at their website here.
