Charity for January, February and March 2013 - MSF Médecins Sans Frontières

Our charity for the first quarter of 2013 is the international organisation Médecins Sans Frontières. Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is an independent international medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid in more than 60 countries to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural or man-made disasters or exclusion from healthcare.

In emergencies and their aftermath, MSF rehabilitates and runs hospitals and clinics, performs surgery, battles epidemics, carries out vaccination campaigns, operates feeding centres for malnourished children and offers mental healthcare.

When needed, MSF also constructs wells, dispenses clean drinking water and provides shelter materials, such as blankets and plastic sheeting.

Worldwide movement

Through longer term programmes, MSF treats patients with infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, sleeping sickness and HIV/AIDS and provides medical and psychological care to marginalised groups, such as street children.

Committed to independent humanitarian action

As an independent and self-directed organisation, MSF's actions are guided by medical ethics and the principles of neutrality and impartiality. This means that MSF offers assistance to people based only on need and irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.

If you would like to hear more about the work of Médecins Sans Frontières, come to the 10 o'clock service at All Saints Church on Sunday, 13th January. Please give as generously as possible. Thank you.
