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. For further information please visit:

Chad: 200,000 Children vaccinated against measles

A measles epidemic has been raging in large parts of Chad for more than a year. To prevent it spreading, 95 percent of children must be vaccinated – but in Chad, only 37 percent of children under five are vaccinated. Measles can be life-threatening, especially in combination with malnutrition. An emergency team of Doctors Without Borders treated measles sufferers in the Am Timan region. The organisation also launched several large-scale vaccination campaigns in partnership with the Chadian Ministry of Health. More than 200,000 children were vaccinated against measles to prevent its spread.

With 3,000 €, Doctors Without Borders can buy vaccines to immunise 12,000 children against measles. With 5,000 € or 10,000 €, the number of children can be 20,000 or 40,000 respectively.

Chad: Vaccination campaign by Doctors Without Borders in the Am Timan region. Four-year-old Achta receives her first measles vaccination of her life. In total, the teams of Doctors Without Borders protected more than 200,000 children.

Chad: The doctor Ollivier Allarasemm from Doctors Without Borders treats a seven-year-old girl suffering from measles. Measles can be life-threatening, especially for malnourished children.

Southern Sudan: Help for People on the Run

Nearly two million people live in southern Sudan on the run. Wars and violence have forced them to leave their homes. Recently there were devastating floods caused by continuous rainfall. Doctors Without Borders provides comprehensive emergency aid throughout the country and provides medical care in many places where there would otherwise be none. The teams care for malnourished children, treat malaria patients, assist with births and fight epidemics. Every year, Doctors Without Borders provides more than one million medical consultations in Southern Sudan.

With 5,500 €, Doctors Without Borders can help 550 women to bring their children into the world safely – with the necessary sterile material. With 3,000 € or 11,000 €, the number of women would be 300 and 1,100 respectively.

Southern Sudan: Doctor Katharina von Goldacker examines her patient Nyajuok Thot Tap, who is pregnant in the eighth month. Doctors Without Borders is one of the few organisations that provide help in the region around Lankien.

Snake Bites: Fighting a Forgotten Disease

Poisoning by snake bites is a little-known health crisis. Every year around 2.7 million people worldwide are bitten by venomous snakes. 100,000 bite victims die, many others suffer lifelong disabilities and disfigurement. Doctors Without Borders is one of the few organisations that helps: The teams treat several thousand patients every year, test anti-toxins and map snake bite hotspots. In addition, Doctors Without Borders advises the World Health Organization (WHO) and national governments so that bite victims all over the world finally have access to effective help free of charge.

With 5,000 €, Doctors Without Borders can treat, seven people who have been bitten by a venomous snake with antidotes. With 3,500 € or 10,000 €, the figure would be five or 14 people respectively.

Southern Sudan: Nyajinma was asleep when a snake bit her. Her mother ran with her for an hour and a half to the nearest health centre – but the necessary therapy was not available. She was sent to Doctors Without Borders. Here she finally received the life-saving antidote.

Southern Sudan: Seasonal workers often work barefoot in the fields and are therefore particularly vulnerable to snake bites. But the life-saving therapy with antidotes is expensive and hardly affordable for them.

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.

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.
