Doctors Without Borders - USA

Capital campaign
For the Emergency Relief Fund. The Emergency Relief Fund (ERF) earmarks funds for neglected emergencies and ensures the organization’s ability to respond to crises at a moment’s notice. The Fund guarantees that interventions are based solely on the medical needs of the population at risk, regardless of the amount of media attention given to any crisis.  In recent years, the greater part of the ERF resources has been dedicated to activities in Africa.

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.
