Friends of Médecins Sans Frontières (FoMSF) is the official student support organisation for MSF, also known as Doctors Without Borders.

 

MSF is a humanitarian aid organisation that delivers emergency aid to people across the world affected by armed conflicts, epidemics, healthcare exclusion and natural or man-made disasters. With the ongoing regugee crisis, MSF are providing medical aid to those in refugee camps and on the sea, with search and rescue boats. MSF is also very active helping those in the Yemen, Libya, and Bangladesh. In addition, they are helping fund PPE for the countries most affected by COVID-19 such as India, South Africa, Brazil and many more. 

 

Our societies core aims: 

  • Raising awareness of the work of MSF and humanitarian issues
  • Fundraising for MSF
  • Encouraging students to consider working for MSF in the future

This is in addition to creating a community of friendly and like-minded students.
