Friends of MSF

Friends of MSF is a student society that supports the work of Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders). MSF is an international humanitarian aid organisation that provides medical assistance to those in greatest need in more than 60 countries. MSF follows the principles of neutrality, independence and impartiality.

This means that MSF helps people in need irrespective of race, religion, ideology or political agendas. Southampton Friends of MSF runs multiple fundraisers throughout the year to raise money and awareness for the charity, as well as holding engaging events with healthcare professionals who have worked with MSF.

Everybody is welcome, whether you just want to help out at fundraising events or get even more involved with us. We even have a few committee roles if you're particularly enthusiastic.
