An Organization with Global Reach Powered by Local Support

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization that provides emergency care to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters or exclusion from healthcare in over 70 countries around the world. MSF is neutral, impartial and independent, offering assistance based on need, regardless of ethnic origin, gender, religion or political affiliation.

MSF relies on donations from private individuals and organizations for most of its income. This private funding enables MSF to be independent. It ensures MSF teams’ ability to respond quickly where people’s needs are greatest and allows them to speak out publicly, free from political influence or agenda. In 2020, funds donated by Canadians went directly to programs in more than 25 countries where MSF operates, as well as the organizations general emergency fund.

“As our emergency medical programs are continuously adapting and evolving with changing contexts, we are deeply appreciative of Power Corporation’s support which provides MSF the flexibility to give medical care wherever it is needed most,” explains Joe Belliveau, MSF Canada’s Executive Director.

Médecins sans frontières has elevated humanitarian capabilities worldwide with its unique approach to identifying needs and devising local solutions.
