Philanthropy

One hundred percent of donations to MSF UK come from private individuals and organisations.

This allows us to help those people in genuine need, wherever it is in the world and whenever it is needed.

"Having worked overseas with MSF, I have seen the power of private funding and how it reaches the people who need it most"

Why your donation matters

“Thank you for considering funding MSF and for playing a part in helping people in need around the globe. MSF relies on private funding to carry out its life-saving work.

"Private funding allows MSF to provide essential medical care to people affected by conflict, natural disasters, epidemics and neglected diseases. It enables us to be truly financially independent and therefore to respond to the most urgent crises in the world rapidly and flexibly, providing input solely according to people’s needs.

"Finally, it allows us to maintain complete independence from all political, economic or religious powers. This independence is vital in gaining access to the many places where MSF works.

"Having worked overseas with MSF, I have seen the power of private funding and how it reaches the people who need it most. It is what makes MSF so uniquely crucial as an international, medical, humanitarian organisation. Thank you for your support.”

MSF UK's partnership with People's Postcode Lottery

“Contributions from players of People’s Postcode Lottery to MSF are the reason we’re able to respond to emergencies like COVID-19 quickly. At the same time, this independent funding allows us to continue to provide life-saving medical care for vulnerable communities across the world.  On the basis of this medical work, we bear witness to the immense human cost of under-reported conflicts.”

Vickie Hawkins – Executive Director, MSF UK

Players of People’s Postcode Lottery have supported MSF through the Postcode Global Trust since 2013 and, up to the end of 2020, have raised an incredible total of £4,475,000 for our work. This short video, celebrating five years of our partnership, highlights some of what we have been able to achieve thanks to this flexible support.
