MÉDECINS SANS FRONTIÈRES (MSF) is an international humanitarian aid organisation also known as Doctors without Borders. There is a misconception that the charity only involves people in healthcare but their work is dependent on the likes of logisticians, project coordinators, and water & sanitation specialists. The work that they do is vital to ensure that there is a system in place for healthcare to be delivered where, and most importantly when, it is needed. It takes an extreme amount of organisation to mobilise, transport and create an appropriate response to whatever disaster needs assistance - MSF works in remote locations around the globe as well as rapid relief efforts in including Palestine and Bangladesh. In addition to emergency work, MSF builds long-term connections with governments to provide education and deliver prevention campaigns.
At Imperial Friends of MSF, we are wholeheartedly committed to fundraising and increasing the awareness of MSF so that they can continue their compassionate work.

We also work with other FoMSF groups across London to coordinate events and last year we helped organise a charity run in Regents park that raised over £25,000!
