Ärzte ohne Grenzen
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international non-profit medical humanitarian organisation that intervenes in crisis and conflict situations. In accordance with its charter, MSF delivers aid to populations in need, to victims of natural or man-made disasters and of armed conflicts, regardless of race, religion or political beliefs. MSF's work is based on humanitarian principles, operating independently and impartially. More than 90 per cent of overall funding comes from non-governmental private sources. MSF is neutral and does not take sides in armed conflicts; providing care on the basis of need alone. MSF medical teams often witness violence and neglect in the course of their work, largely in regions that receive scant international attention. At times, MSF may publically speak out in an effort to draw attention to a forgotten crisis, to alert the public of obstacles and/or abuses occurring beyond the headlines, to criticise the inadequacies of the humanitarian response, or to challenge the diversion of humanitarian aid for political interests.
