Thank you for helping us save lives.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is caring for people in need and easing suffering in more than 70 countries around the world thanks to donors like you. We’re treating children for malnutrition, providing emergency medical aid to those injured in conflict and bringing humanitarian care to some of the millions around the world who are displaced. We’re there for anyone who needs us thanks to MSF supporters — more than 90 per cent of our funding comes from individual donors like you, including the funds we receive from your MSF Warehouse purchases. With every Warehouse gift you give, you’re helping us save lives around the world. On behalf of our team and our patients: thank you.

I have the privilege of hearing ‘thank you’ every day from mothers and fathers whose sick children are restored to health. For every thank you I receive, I share with you. After all, without you, MSF would not be here.

— Dr. Reza Eshaghian, MSF doctor

Gifts in the field

Millions suffer from malnutrition every year; it’s a contributing factor in nearly half of the deaths of children under age five around the world. In 2018, MSF treated thousands of children for malnutrition, admitting more than 74,000 to inpatient feeding programs. In Sierra Leone, nurse Amanda Hooeyboer was part of a team that opened an MSF hospital specifically equipped to treat malnutrition. She remembers one of the hospital’s first patients, a 15-month-old girl.

“Over the next few days, I saw (her) healing and growing,” says Amanda. “The first time our sweet patient started clapping and singing with the staff at feeding time, I knew that we were here for a reason — that in opening this hospital we would help more children smile and grow and thrive.”

When you give any gift from the MSF Warehouse, including the three featured below, you’re helping MSF deliver humanitarian aid so more children can smile, grow and thrive.

Gifts in the field

Point-of-care ultrasound machines, also known as POCUS, are a new addition to the MSF Warehouse, but our medical teams in countries where resources are limited are already relying on them to save lives. They’re a less expensive, less bulky alternative to traditional ultrasounds and require less training. And they’re helping MSF doctors like Achai Bulabek, working in South Sudan, make bedside decisions to treat patients like the seven-year-old boy she describes below who was showing symptoms of pneumonia. Thanks to MSF supporters like you, her team had the tools they needed to save his life.

I did a quick cardiopulmonary ultrasound and it showed a build-up of fluid. Using the ultrasound to guide us...we inserted a small needle through the wall of the chest to remove fluid. The tap showed pus in the pleural cavity, so, using a chest tube, we drained the pus in less than 10 minutes. We are able to save many lives using this tiny, portable machine.
