Book release: A Not-So-Natural Disaster
MSF is pleased to announce the publication of Niger 2005: A Not-So-Natural Disaster, edited by Xavier Crombe and Jean-Herve Jezequel and published by Hurst & Company, London. This book examines the malnutrition crisis that struck Niger during the "hunger gap" months of 2005, a period when MSF treated 60,000 malnourished children, from a variety of perspectives. Nutrition experts, academic researchers, and aid workers share their analysis of the historical, sociological, and political roots of the crisis and the implications for future aid responses.
A photo exhibit based on the highly praised graphic novel The Photographer: Into War-Torn Afghanistan with Doctors Without Borders will be on display in November at the Freedom Tower in downtown Miami during the Miami Book Fair.
Strengthen Your Commitment
MSF would like to thank all of our donors who have pledged to our Multiyear Initiative. With their annual commitments of $5,000 or more, these generous supporters provide MSF with predictable and sustainable funds, enabling us to respond effectively and rapidly to emergencies around the world and helping us to better plan for the future. To date, we have received pledges totaling over $20 million towards the Initiative. To find out how you can participate, please contact Mary Sexton, director of major gifts, at (212) 655-3781 or email@example.com.
For our Future and Yours
MSF’s Charitable Gift Annuities make it easy to provide for our future as well as your own. When you set up a gift annuity for at least $5,000 with MSF, you will receive fixed payments for life and an immediate income tax deduction. Minimum age when payments begin is 65. We follow the schedule of rates recommended by the American Council on Gift Annuities.
