Doctors Without Borders

Doctors Without Borders
Doctors Without Borders provides medical emergency aid in both war torn areas and areas affected by natural catastrophes where the lives of many people are threatened when health structures collapse or population groups are not adequately supplied. In over 60 countries, international and local employees work in many different capacities: doctors, nurses, midwives and logisticians. Their activities are diverse: they operate clinics, build nutrition centers for children, carry out vaccination campaigns and provide refugees or displaced persons with medicines, clean drinking water, latrines and blankets.
Doctors Without Borders helps people in need quickly, professionally and without asking for their origin, religion or political conviction. This principle has not changed since young French doctors and journalists founded the organisation in 1971 under the name Médecins Sans Frontières. When the rights of civilians are infringed on in a conflict situation and they are denied help, the employees work for them. The organisation is committed to the principles of neutrality, impartiality and independence. In 1999, Doctors Without Borders were honoured with the Nobel Peace Prize.
The German division of Doctors Without Borders is 90 percent financed by private donations. This makes it possible to work independently of political or economic interests and the organisation can focus itself to where help is needed.

Yemen: More than 90,000 war wounded provided for

Yemen: More than 90,000 war wounded provided for
Fifteen-year-old Waddah is treated in the isolation ward at the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Aden. His wound is infected with resistant germs.
Many people in Yemen are subject to the violence of war on a daily basis. More than half of the country’s health facilities are closed because they have been destroyed or because there is a lack of medical personnel or medicines. Doctors Without Borders is one of the few local medical organizations that is helping on both sides of the civil war. From the beginning of the fighting in March 2015 to October 2018, Doctors Without Borders has treated more than 90,000 war wounded and violently injured. The organisation works in twelve hospitals and health centres. In addition, it supports 20 other facilities with material and expert advice. Doctors Without Borders provides this assistance with 2,200 employees.
With 5,000 €, Doctors Without Borders can put together surgical instruments, bandages and medication for 135 emergency patients. With 3,000 € or 10,000 € there are 80 or 275 emergency patients.
Yemen: More than 90,000 war wounded provided for
After the blood test of this seriously ill man was positive, the staff of Doctors Without Borders transferred him to a special Ebola treatment centre.
In August 2018, an Ebola outbreak is announced in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is the tenth and most severe outbreak in the country since the virus was discovered in 1976. The epidemic is difficult to control as the affected provinces of North Kivu and Ituri are fighting. According to the Congolese Ministry of Health, 483 people have fallen ill in the first four and a half months alone, 265 of them dying from Ebola. Doctors Without Borders supports the containment of the epidemic at many levels: The teams are particularly concerned with isolating and treating patients, supporting vaccination campaigns and taking on prevention and awareness-raising tasks. In addition, Doctors Without Borders informs important decision-makers in the communities about their efforts against Ebola. With their support, the teams can better reach the patients and their relatives.
With 5,000 €, Doctors Without Borders, can finance, e.g., five 45 square metre tents in which Ebola patients are isolated and treated. With 3,000 € or 10,000 € there would be three or ten hospital tents.

Yemen: Helping under extreme conditions

Yemen: Helping under extreme conditions
Yemen: In the hospital in Aden, the teams from Doctors Without Borders are engaging in life-saving operations.
The population in Yemen has been suffering from a brutal conflict since March 2015. Air raids hit hospitals and schools time and again. The facilities of Doctors Without Borders have also been attacked several times. Nearly 2,000 Yemeni and international workers are providing emergency aid under these extreme conditions. The teams are working directly in hospitals and health centres in Yemen, as well as supporting 24 medical facilities in the country. The assistance ranges from surgical procedures, obstetrics, and mobile medical teams, through to the provision of water and other supplies.
With € 5,000, Doctors Without Borders can acquire surgical instruments, bandages and medicines for 135 emergency patients. With € 3,000 or € 10,000, that would be 80 emergency patients or 275 emergency patients.

Nigeria: Emergency aid for malnourished children

Nigeria: Emergency aid for malnourished children
This mother came with her child for an examination to a Doctors Without Borders health centre in Northern Nigeria. Malnourished children usually also suffer from malaria, respiratory infections or diarrhoea.
Around two million people are fleeing North-eastern Nigeria. They are seeking protection from fighting between the Boko Haram armed group and the Nigerian military. A large portion of the displaced people are living in makeshift camps under the most difficult of conditions. Almost everything is lacking for supplying this enormous amount of people. Many children are emaciated and in mortal danger. The teams of Doctors Without Borders are treating the sick, providing for the acutely malnourished children, distributing relief supplies, food and water. The workers are organising large vaccination campaigns, especially to protect the weakened children from diseases such as measles.
With € 5,000, Doctors Without Borders can, for example, provide more than 220 malnourished children with ready-to-use therapeutic food for four weeks. With € 3,000 or € 10,000 that would be more than 130 children or 450 children.

In the heart of Africa

In the heart of Africa
This child needs urgent care in a hospital in Baraka supported by Doctors Without Borders. He suffers from a severe malaria disease.
The political and humanitarian situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has been unstable for decades: displacement and violence, disease and malnutrition threaten people’s lives. Disease outbreaks and epidemics – such as malaria, measles and cholera – occur time and again. The Doctors Without Borders teams therefore provide basic health care in the largest country in the heart of Africa, treating malnourished children and malaria and measles patients. They operate on injured people, accompany births and treat tuberculosis and HIV patients. The teams are also active in health prevention: they vaccinate thousands of children through large-scale campaigns, educate people about health issues and distribute mosquito nets that protect against malaria.
With 3,000 €, Doctors Without Borders can treat more than 11,500 children against malaria. With 5.000 € or 7.800 € there are more than 19.000 children or more than 30.000 children.

In Southern Sudan

In Southern Sudan
In our hospital in Melut we mainly treat people who have been driven out of their region by fighting.
The political and humanitarian situation in Southern Sudan has been unstable for decades. Again and again people have to suffer from armed conflicts. Violence has often escalated in the country. Around 1.5 million Southern Sudanese are fleeing fighting within their country. They need emergency medical aid, food, drinking water and shelter. Access to displaced people is a major challenge for humanitarian organisations in many places. In some areas, Doctors Without Borders is the only relief organisation offering health care to the people. The teams provide surgical assistance, basic health care, obstetrics, nutrition, distribution and vaccination campaigns.
With 8,000 €, Doctors Without Borders can, for example, administer anaesthesia to 325 severely injured people who have to undergo emergency surgery following outbreaks of violence. With 3,000 € or 10,000 € there are more than 125 severely injured or more than 400 severely injured.
