Tuesday, 11 October 2016 - A group of Doctors Without Borders (MSF) fundraisers will be in Polokwane, from 10 –15 October, to raise funds and awareness about MSF’s emergency medical humanitarian work around the world.
“We are in Limpopo to ask the community to get involved with us as ongoing supporters, to donate and join the MSF family so we can do even more, together. This is your chance to really get involved in saving lives of the vulnerable and displaced people in Syria, South Sudan and Yemen amongst others,” says Kelly Barlow, MSF southern Africa travel team’s coordinator.
Shoppers will get a chance to interact with the fundraisers at Mall of the North in Polokwane 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.
More about MSF Southern African Fundraising tours
Donations from private individuals here in South Africa and in the world over enable MSF to maintain independence, impartiality and neutrality in our medical work in more than 60 countries where we work. MSF is 92% privately funded which allows our fieldworkers to operate in war zones with independence and respond rapidly during emergencies.
