A time for compassion & care
What is Giving Tuesday?
A day of global giving and an opportunity for us to celebrate the true spirit of the holiday season.
When is Giving Tuesday in 2019?
Giving Tuesday 2019 is on December 3. On this Tuesday, we are asking you to give a gift with serious impact.
We go where few other organizations can or will, reaching millions of people. In many cases, without Doctors Without Borders, there would be nowhere else our patients could turn for medical care.
We’re able to reach as many people as we do because of our fierce independence. Generous donations from committed individuals like you make up 90 percent of our income.
We could not do this work without people like you who choose to act on their values.
The power of choosing to act
Your Giving Tuesday donation supports a powerful movement of over 42,000 Doctors Without Borders doctors, nurses, and other experts who are doing whatever it takes to provide lifesaving medical and mental health care to those most in need every single day.
In over 70 countries, Doctors Without Borders teams are delivering emergency aid to those caught in crisis. In the midst of an armed conflict, an epidemic, a natural disaster, or a lack of urgently needed health care, Doctors Without Borders is there.
In 2018 alone, Doctors Without Borders provided medical care to more than 11 million people and that's just the beginning.
Join this powerful movement now and help our teams reach more people with the lifesaving medical care they need.
Medical aid where it’s needed most
Doctors Without Borders goes wherever we’re needed most. Our teams are providing medical and mental health care in active war zones such as Yemen, where civilians are caught in the crossfire. We’re also on the ground in Democratic Republic of Congo, working to contain the second-largest Ebola outbreak in history. Our response to the worldwide refugee crisis includes innovative response teams providing care along migratory routes through Mexico, rescuing refugees and migrants from the Mediterranean Sea, as well as providing care to over one million Rohingya refugees in Bangladeshi refugee camps.
Doctors Without Borders teams are often on the ground when unexpected crises develop: while combating a measles epidemic we may notice that many children in the region are also suffering from severe malnutrition.
It’s sustaining support from monthly donors—our Field Partners—who provide the reliable resources we need to pivot quickly. Field Partners make it possible for us to send our teams the supplies they need to address an emerging crisis before further death or suffering occurs.
