Doctors Without Borders | Our Partnership to Provide Humanitarian Aid
Established in Paris, France in 1971, Médecins Sans Frontières (known internationally in English as Doctors Without Borders) was founded on the belief that “all people have the right to medical care regardless of gender, race, religion, creed, or political affiliation, and that the needs of these people outweigh respect for national boundaries.”
The organization provides humanitarian aid to those in areas of need, including conflict zones or regions affected by natural disasters and epidemics. In addition to medical aid, Doctors Without Borders – which was awarded the 1999 Nobel Peace Prize for its global humanitarian efforts – also provides food, water and accommodation for those in need.
Yogi is proud to support the efforts of Doctors Without Borders in over 70 countries, most recently in Syria; where Doctors Without Borders is providing medical care, supplies, food, and other essentials to the many individuals living in the country’s besieged regions.
