When an emergency strikes, Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF's) aid workers are often the first to respond and in many contexts they are the only providers of healthcare. By supporting MSF's Emergency Relief Fund (ERF), you will help our response to emergencies around the world.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The recent typhoon in the Philippines highlights just how quickly things can change--and how critical your support of MSF's emergency response programs is.
How will this project solve this problem?
The fund enables MSF to launch an emergency program based entirely on the needs of the people caught in crisis. MSF programs supported by the ERF serve victims of natural and man-made disasters where little to no healthcare services are available.
Potential Long Term Impact
The ERF allocates funds to help MSF teams respond to emergencies around the world, whether or not they attract attention from the media or garner contributions from donors. By supporting the ERF, you will help our teams respond as quickly as possible when disaster strikes.
