Rock titans Muse are performing at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, London on May 10 to raise money for The Big Issue – and you can win tickets here. The night before that, they are also playing to raise funds for War Child and Médecins Sans Frontières(MSF).
Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) is a non-profit, independent and impartial humanitarian NGO, delivering vital medical treatment where it’s needed most, even inside conflict zones.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary last year, MSF has grown from 300 volunteers to 65,000 people worldwide. It was established with the belief that all victims of armed conflict, epidemics, and natural or man-made disasters have the right to medical assistances quickly and efficiently irrespective of religion, race or politics.
From just £3 per week
MSF teams have been directly responding to the Covid-19 pandemic over the last two years, while ensuring treatment and demands for non-Covid-19 needs such as cholera, HIV and TB are met all over the world, while increasing their vital work in Ukraine.
Here, Médecins Sans Frontières‘s executive director Vickie Hawkins explains the work the charity is doing to help those affected by the war in Ukraineand other conflicts.
We are absolutely delighted to be working with Muse for this very special fundraising event. MSF is an international medical humanitarian organisation that works in over 70 countries worldwide, providing vital medical care to people in conflict zones, natural disasters, and epidemics, or who have otherwise been excluded from healthcare. From emergency care to longer-term interventions, we are committed to going where the need is greatest.
