While in some (rare) circumstances it is possible to have your gift directed toward a specific program or country where we are currently working, we ask that you contribute unrestricted funding. By not restricting your contribution for a specific emergency or project, you will enable us to allocate our resources more efficiently and where the need is greatest.
Médecins Sans Frontières is unable to accept donations of supplies. Because the key to saving lives in an emergency is speed, it is our practice to have prepared, specialised, and uniform kits and other materials that are ready to go in the event of an emergency. Médecins Sans Frontières does all of the purchasing for these kits in advance and therefore cannot accept in-kind gifts such as medical equipment, drugs, food, or other materials for its operations.

About Medecins Sans Frontieres
No, Médecins Sans Frontières does not have any religious or political affiliations. We carry out our work and assist those in need regardless of race, religion, gender or political affiliation. We remain completely independent so that we have greater freedom to go where we are needed and to speak out about the suffering and injustice we see in the course of our work.
Yes you can! Thank you for your interest in organising a fundraising event for Médecins Sans Frontières. Fundraising events are a fun and interesting way for you to support and raise awareness of our work and we appreciate your efforts on our behalf. See our detailed information on how to organise a fundraiser for Médecins Sans Frontières.
Médecins Sans Frontières understandably has very strict guidelines about the use of our name and logo. We are often asked for the use of our name or logo in publications or in association with other organisations and each request needs to be approved on a case by case basis.
With this in mind please contact Médecins Sans Frontières with the details of your suggestion and how you intend to use the Médecins Sans Frontières name and logo. Call us on 0508 633 324 or email our office at [email protected]
We regret that we are not able to give out or sell Médecins Sans Frontières t-shirts to people who are not directly involved with our organisation. Médecins Sans Frontières t-shirts are the uniform of our staff in the field and clearly identify the wearer in this context as a humanitarian aid worker. Understandably this means we unfortunately cannot give or sell our t-shirts to supporters. Médecins Sans Frontières New Zealand does not currently sell any other merchandise or items.
