Charity of the Month: Doctors Without Borders
Doctors Without Borders––or Médecins Sans Frontières, as it’s known internationally––operates impartially, without regard for political, racial, or religious realities. They provide essential healthcare to those without regularly available treatment, including emergency response in the wake of catastrophe, logistical specialists to coordinate on-the-ground efforts, and so much more.
Wind River supports this important organization each year, and this month 20% of online sales will be donated to help support their ongoing work.
Of course, this year COVID-19 has taken center stage, to place even more demands on parts of the world that are already without proper healthcare. Doctors Without Borders is responding in over 70 countries, offering critical medical assistance. In addition, they are providing medical care to refugees around the world, and helping countries deal with other common health issues.
Founded in 1971, Doctors Without Borders is owned, shared, and run by members who undauntedly deliver aid to over 70 countries in the face of economic turmoil and political unrest. To maintain their independence, Doctors Without Borders relies upon the generosity of private donors, with about 90% of their funding coming from that single avenue. To help make up the remaining 10%, we will be giving 20% of February’s online sales in direct support of their cause.
Curious about where exactly all those donations go? Doctors Without Borders employs a fully transparent philosophy, and makes all of their reporting available to the public. So you can see exactly how your support is used. Place your order online, and know that 20% of your total will help bring much needed hope and care where it’s needed most.
