To provide immediate support and humanitarian aid to the earthquake victims in Haiti.
Doctors Without Borders was founded in 1971 by a group of French physicians who believed that the right to medical aid transcends national borders. Its mission is to provide medical and humanitarian relief to the victims of war, disease, and natural or man-made disaster, without regard to race, nationality, political beliefs or religion. The organization received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.
