MSF - Medicins Sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders) is an international organisation that provides medical health internationally to anyone in need. They have a small putfir in Ireland with just 6 full time staff and 15 members 'in the field' . Their three core values are IMPARTIALITY (free medical care to anyine, reagrdless of race or creed), NEUTRALITY (they work in conflict regions and are trusted by everyone because of thier neutrality), INDEPENDENCE - because they accept very little funding from governments, they can go to any region at a moment's notice.
They are currently preparing to launch a Search and Rescue operation in the Mediterranean Sea.
