Helping Doctors Without Borders to provide emergency relief In Mozambique

Who they are

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) provides life-saving emergency relief and longer-term medical aid to some of the most vulnerable people in the world.

What they do

Since its founding in 1971, MSF has been committed to the principles of independence, neutrality and impartiality. They work where the need is greatest, treating people regardless of ethnic origin, gender, religion or political affiliation. Their medical teams act fast to save lives in conflict zones, epidemics and natural disasters. 

How we’re helping

The tcc foundation supports MSF’s emergency response in Mozambique, following the devastation caused by Cyclone Idai in March 2019. Our donation helps MSF to rapidly deploy staff and more than 100 tonnes of supplies to Beira. It supports MSF teams to repair health centres, run mobile clinics, provide medical kits and vaccines, set up cholera treatment units, and respond to water, sanitation and hygiene needs. This includes the distribution of hygiene kits to around 5,000 families to prevent the spread of waterborne diseases, supporting the Ministry of Health to treat over 3,400 cholera patients, and installing a water treatment facility providing up to 7,500 litres of clean water per hour for one local healthcare centre and community.
