Southampton Friends of MSF is a student society that supports and promotes the work of Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders).
MSF is an international organisation that provides humanitarian medical aid to some of the world's most vulnerable people. They work in conflict zones, areas hit by natural disasters and epidemics, and countries where there simply isn't access to healthcare services. MSF has core principles of independence, neutrality and impartiality, meaning they help people in need regardless of race, religion, ideology or politics.
Southampton Friends of MSF runs multiple fundraisers throughout the year to raise funds and awareness, as well as holding engaging events with people who have worked for MSF and other organisations within the humanitarian aid sector. Everybody is welcome to get involved with our work, whether you just want to come to our events, help out with fundraising or even join our wonderful committee!
All clubs and societies within the Students' Union are run entirely by students. The student committee for Friends of MSF this year are:
