Monday, July 11, 2016 — Monday, July 11, 2016 — A group of Doctors Without Borders (MSF) fundraisers will visit Port Elizabeth from 11 July to 16 July as part of its three weeks-long tour to raise funds and awareness about MSF’s emergency medical humanitarian work around the world in the three Eastern Cape towns.
“We have visited the Eastern Cape during the last three years, and we always look forward to this tour because people of this province always support our work with such generosity. We would love to see Port Elizabeth residents visiting our team at the Greenacres Mall during our week-long stay there. It’s the donations from private individuals in Southern Africa and the world that enable MSF to maintain independence, impartiality and neutrality in our medical work in more than 60 countries where we work,” says Kelly Barlow, the MSF’s Southern Africa Travel Teams Coordinator.
Shoppers will get a chance to interact with the fundraisers at Greenacres Mall in Port Elizabeth and know more about MSF's work abroad and in South Africa, including our HIV and TB projects in Eshowe in KwaZulu-Natal and Khayelitsha in the Western Cape, as well as our project in Rustenburg which treats survivors of sexual violence.
The fundraising team has already visited East London and Grahamstown during the Arts Festival where they interacted with shoppers and festival lovers from different walks of life.
MSF Southern Africa undertakes fundraising outreach tours three times per year in various provinces, including the Free State, KwaZulu Natal and the Eastern Cape where the organization does not have permanent fundraisers.
