Support Doctors Without Borders

2016-09-21 06:00

A TEAM of Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) fund-raisers will wind up its three-week tour of KwaZulu-Natal by visiting Liberty Midlands Mall from today until 24 September to raise awareness and funds for the organisation’s work in South Africa and the world.

Doctors Without Borders is an independent international medical humanitarian organisation working to bring emergency medical care to people caught in conflict, crises and disasters in more than 65 countries around the world including South Africa. It relies on regular donations from individual donors to support their work.

“It is always exciting to come to KZN because of the huge support we always receive from there. As we embark on this journey again, we are calling on the residents of Pieter- maritzburg to once again get involved with us as ongoing supporters, to donate and join the MSF family so we can do even more to help those people in need of medical care around the world and to support our work in South Africa,” said Kelly Barlow, the MSF Southern Africa travel teams co-ordinator.

During the tour Liberty Midlands Mall shoppers will learn more about the work MSF does in South Africa and elsewhere, including the emergency medical and psychosocial care offered to victims of sexual violence in Rustenburg, the HIV project in Khayelitsha, which provides specialised treatment for children, and MSF’s HIV-TB programme covering Mbongolwane and Eshowe in KZN.

The MSF fund-raising team has already visited the Westwood Mall in Westville, the University of KwaZulu-Natal Medical Campus and the Pavilion where they hosted a displacement camp exhibition, which depicted the horror that people who are forced to flee their homes to seek protection elsewhere, face. - Supplied.
