To mark the 50-year anniversary of Médecins Sans Frontières, Doctors Without Borders are proud to bring to Sydney “Beyond Borders”, a photo exhibition reflecting five-decades of medical humanitarian action.
Doctors Without Borders share some of the pivotal moments that mark their history, moments which shine a light on the strength of people who have lived through unimaginable crises.
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) was founded in 1971 in France by a group of doctors and journalists in the wake of war and famine in Biafra (now part of Nigeria). Their aim was to establish an independent organisation that focused on delivering emergency medical aid quickly, effectively, and impartially.
MSF was created in the belief that all people should have access to healthcare regardless of gender, race, religion, creed or political affiliation, and that people’s medical needs outweigh respect for national boundaries.
They are as committed today to working with people where they need them most.
They are excited to bring their supporters together for this occasion and they hope that this event inspires connection. A connection to their patients, their staff, and their projects as they highlight the wide-reaching impact of your kindness.
Bring family and friends to see these extraordinary photographs that honour people who have needed their care and those who have helped us provide it and help us share the message of humanity.
