Raising much needed funds for Doctors Without Borders (MSF / Medicins sans Frontieres)
Supplying Medical Aid Where It Is Needed Most
It is easy to write inspiring words to define an organisation’s mission – it is much harder to put those principles in to practice. At the core of MSF’s identity is a commitment to independence, neutrality and impartiality.
These ideals have driven every aspect of our work – from medical care and logistics to finance and communications – since MSF was established in 1971.
Our commitment to these principles, and the impact of the organisation built on them, was recognised in 1999 when MSF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
I am raising much-needed funds for MSF.
How Can You Help Us
Run an event, invite me to speak or donate …
Our Fundraising team is dedicated to providing the highest standard of care to our supporters, without whom MSF’s work would simply not be possible.
In recent years, your support has enabled MSF to significantly expand our programmes in the field, reach more people in need, respond faster to emergencies, broaden the range of medical services we provide and improve the quality of our medical care.
We are committed to expanding our reach in the years to come, and your support is the foundation of this.
Fundraisers like you are vital. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to provide life-saving medical care where it’s needed most, so we want to do whatever we can to support you.
Your donation matters: 100 percent of our donations come from people like you, and 84 percent is spent on helping people who need it most.
On any day there are some 31,000 inspiring doctors, nurses, logisticians and other project staff working for MSF overseas. They save lives in the most extreme places, offering hope and care to people facing disasters.
When they’ve returned home, many of them are happy to share their stories and talk about the reality of life working for MSF.
If you’d like to request a speaker for an event, fill in the form below and we’ll do our best to help. We are charity fundraisers for MSF but my partner has worked in the Ebola clinics of Sierra Leone, South Sudan and others for MSF.
Welcome to our online resources for schools. Here you can find information about MSF UK for use in the classroom.
We are the world’s leading independent medical humanitarian aid organisation working in over 60 countries around the world. We provide emergency medical aid in countries affected by war, natural disasters, or disease. MSF has developed a number of resources for teachers and students from across the UK who want to know more about our work.
Working with teachers and a subject association MSF has developed a series of multi-media teaching and learning materials for A level Biology, A level Geography, French and Spanish language study. Can we come to your school and speak?

Day 70 63 Miles Cycling along through highway 22 was like being inside our own horror movie! This was ugly.The pace was fast and furious. I held my breath for parts and only exhaled when I saw a friendly smile, hoot or wave. Then I knew they didn't want to eat...read more
Day 69 33 Miles Our morning started in out in a damp tent. As soon as I opened the zip on the tent water dripped on my head. Tentatively, I crept out because the spiders are huge here! Just last night one ran over the top of the tent. You couldn't...read more
Day 68 45 Miles The first thing to greet me this morning was a bug! He was HUGE and appeared to be having a flipping good time in our tent. These guys (bugs) sang all night and they sent me into a lullaby slumber. Back to the bug. Andy got a nudge to...read more
