I support charities based on the cause they work towards, how efficiently they are run, and if they are recognised as a trustworthy organisation — and I started supporting Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) based on their standing on these three parameters. I originally got to know about their work when they won the Nobel Peace Prize, and I hope they will continue their good work ethically, professionally and with compassion. At this stage, I think all of their projects are worthwhile, and trust them to allocate resources to projects based on their strategy and field requirements. Wish MSF all the best in their efforts globally and in India.
I was impressed by Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) when I read about it in 1999 -MSF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and the organisation announced the money would go towards raising awareness of and fighting against neglected diseases. I heard about MSF India in 2017 when some of its representatives visited our institute (IIT Jodhpur) seeking donations for the malnutrition campaign in remote areas of India. I hope my contribution helped MSF reach out to the needy. Medical expenses push people towards poverty especially when a natural or human-made disaster strikes them. MSF works for victims in disaster-prone areas and their neutral stance in such cases is also noteworthy. I wish MSF team success in their humanitarian healthcare initiatives and request others to support their tireless efforts to create a healthy world.
It gives me immense pleasure to be associated with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) India for the last two years. The selfless efforts of medical professionals working in remote and rural areas of India, where poor people are suffering from several serious ailments, are praiseworthy. I feel proud to contribute a little for this great cause and urge our countrymen to come forward to help such needy people. We should also be grateful to the ‘Almighty’ for providing us the capability and inner strength to contribute towards humanity. My good wishes to all those associated with this great job.
I came to know about Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) 19 years ago through a Pictionary game where my friend drew out a man with a stethoscope in dots and dashes. I lost the game, but MSF, fortunately, went ahead and won the Nobel Peace Prize that year. It also won the admiration of a generation of trainee doctors like me, and made us realise that providing medical care to people who need it the most requires commitment and unflinching dedication. So donating to MSF was a foregone conclusion. It was the least I could do for an organisation which provides healthcare to the most needy. Over the years I have followed MSF’s work on multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in Mumbai and malnutrition in Bihar and Jharkhand. I have come to believe that the money I donate to MSF annually is money well-spent. Last year, I was involved in a fundraiser for MSF; it made me realise the difficulties the fundraising team goes through. I would, therefore, recommend MSF to every acquaintance willing to donate for a charitable cause. Without the participation of private donors, MSF would not be able to continue the awe-inspiring humanitarian work that they are involved in currently.
I came to know about Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in early 2016 when a team of interns working for MSF India unit visited me at my office. I was provided a comprehensive overview of the diverse social causes for which MSF India works. I subsequently made a donation for tackling the malnutrition issue plaguing various regions of the country. Since then I have been making annual donations to support diverse causes of MSF India. MSF through its dedicated team of doctors, para-medics and field staff has been doing great work towards ensuring enhanced quality of life for all levels of society. I convey my best wishes to team MSF in general and MSF India in particular.
I feel very happy to have contributed to the illustrious work being done by MSF. I belong to a family of doctors, and I really do know the importance of giving and receiving efficient and timely healthcare support. I appreciate all the activities of MSF in India, but as children and women are more vulnerable in our society I would like to proactively support their cause. I will most certainly recommend MSF in my network, as I have faith in the humanitarian services they deliver in an organised, professional and sensitive way. I commend the teamwork, and wish everyone in MSF the best in their endeavours to alleviate suffering and be the harbingers of good health and wellbeing.

I wanted to make a small contribution and I was looking for a reliable philanthropic partner through which my little contribution could reach the needy on time. In the meantime, I came to know about Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) through one of their representatives who briefed me about the organisation’s work in and outside India. I had already read about MSF in the newspapers, but I decided to find out more about their operations. It is very heartening that an organisation is working without any borders and providing much-needed medical support to the underprivileged. I am happy to have become a part of their mission through my donation.
I am delighted to be part of the community that is supporting MSF’s work around the world and in India. I have lived in the UK for the past 22 years with my husband who works for INMARSAT, a company which provides mobile satellite communications. INMARSAT has supported MSF over the years and I became aware of your work through this association. There is also regular reporting in the British and International media about MSF’s work in war-torn and disaster zones, where there is no governance and little or no infrastructure. Medical care is provided very often by MSF or the International Red Cross in these conditions. I met some MSF representatives on a recent visit to Delhi and was pleased to learn that they are actively involved in a variety of projects in India. The decision to support MSF was a very easy one because I know that this money is going to provide humanitarian relief to anyone and everyone irrespective of their identity, and save lives. Doctors and others who work for this organisation often put their own lives in danger to help others and reach people and places that governments cannot or will not reach. I have considered the work that MSF is carrying out in India. Each of these areas is incredibly important - how can one make a choice between maternal and child healthcare and helping survivors of gender and sexual violence or those suffering from kala azar, pneumonia, TB, HIV/AIDS? The need is great and the resources are few. I am happy to support any of these projects. I would like to congratulate MSF on their Campaign for Access to Essential Medicines and support their case in the High court against the patent granted for the anti-pneumonia vaccine. I have no hesitation in recommending MSF to the public in India and around the world and urge people to donate generously.
