Doctors Without Borders/Medecines sans Frontieres (MSF): For up to date info on what they have been urgently doing lately, visit their website www.doctorswithoutborders.org.
Long known for going anywhere, including very dangerous places where conflict is depriving citizens of much needed medical care, this four-star rated charity is very much akin to what SF medics do, except they don’t have the luxury of sometimes having an A team to protect them. Many of these amazing medical professionals die in war zones doing what they can and saving many lives.
From their website: “MSF has a longstanding presence in Ukraine, including in parts of the eastern region that have been affected by armed conflict since 2014. A large part of our work in Ukraine from 2014 to 2021 was responding to the needs of patients with HIV, tuberculosis, or other chronic illnesses. Due to the current war, we have halted normal activities and have started emergency activities in Ukraine. We currently have teams in Kyiv, Lviv, Vinnytsia, Zhytomir, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Odessa, Mykolaiv, Poltava, Bila Tserkva, Uzhhorod and Ivano-Frankivsk. We also have teams in Poland, Moldova, Hungary, Slovakia, Russia, and Belarus. MSF is an independent and impartial organization committed to providing medical humanitarian assistance to people affected by the war no matter who they are or where they are.”
