I am a paediatrician by profession. Being a medical practitioner, I am concerned about matters of healthcare. I got to know about Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières’ (MSF) work in the field of medical humanitarianism a few years back through the media. I liked their work on kala azar, malnutrition, and mother and child healthcare in remote areas of India. I was in search of a credible organisation to donate to on the occasion of my son’s birthday last year. I was contacted by an MSF India representative around the same time and, after receiving detailed information on the organisation, I donated towards their mother and child care project in Chhattisgarh. I strongly recommend supporting MSF’s work in India because of their transparency. I express my sincere thanks to MSF for making a difference in the lives of those who really need help.
