UPDATE: Our medical response

Medical emergencies don't stop in times of crisis. Neither do we.

AFGHANISTAN: Health services under extreme pressure

Despite the massive challenges, a dedicated team of 2,300 Médecins Sans Frontières staff members are still on the ground in Afghanistan, working across all five of our projects in the country. The needs remain huge, but we are committed to providing emergency care, like surgical interventions for trauma-related injuries, while ensuring access to ongoing care including treatment for drug-resistant tuberculosis, safe delivery care, and so much more. Amid uncertainty and instability, the Afghan people need us now more than ever.


HAITI Earthquake: Sending 100 tonnes of emergency supplies

On the other side of the world, we continue to provide medical care to the people affected by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that shook southern Haiti on 14 August. To help aid the response, our teams sent approximately 100 tonnes of medical and relief supplies to Haiti from our supply warehouse in Brussels, Belgium. The cargo included emergency medical tents, water and sanitation supplies, and first aid and medical materials for the care of up to 30,000 patients.

In the video below, Médecins Sans Frontières freight operator Hussein Choker shows us a behind-the-scenes look at the process.

Our ability to respond quickly and efficiently to emergencies like these is crucial to saving lives and it’s only possible thanks to your generosity and support.

Thank you for standing in solidarity with our patients and taking action to respond to these emergencies around the world.


Each donation gets us closer to reaching more patients requiring urgent medical attention, no matter who or where they are.
