Today, MSF provides aid in nearly 70 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters. MSF provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need.
Their teams need your help to do their work. Support this emergency response and ongoing emergency medical work in Haiti by visiting www.doctorswithoutborders.org.
