Médecins Sans Frontières

Médecins Sans Frontières Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) is a private, nonprofit, international humanitarian organisation, whose objective is to provide medical relief to populations in crisis.

The organisation operates independently of all governments, institutions, political, economic, or religious influences. It depends on volunteer health professionals in fulfilling its mission.

Largely supported by private donors, the organisation is able to maintain great flexibility and total independence in its choice of operations.

Médecins Sans Frontières was established in 1971 by a group of physicians determined to offer emergency assistance wherever wars and man-made disasters occur. Its guiding principles are laid down in a charter to which all members of the organisation subscribe.

In accordance with universal medical ethics and the right to humanitarian assistance, Médecins Sans Frontières observes strict impartiality and demands full and unhindered freedom in performing its functions.

Médecins Sans Frontières has a wide range of expertise and proven techniques and strategies of intervention. The organisation is able to effectively pool the logistics and human resouces necessary to provide rapid and efficient relief.

When medical assistance is not enough to save lives, Médecins Sans Frontières will speak out against human rights abuses and violations of humanitarian law that its teams witness in the course of providing medical relief.

Médecins Sans Frontières is an international organisation, with offices in 19 countries. It sends more than 2,000 volunteers, of more than 45 nationalities, to some 80 countries annually.

The Flores Project

Health For AllThrough the project's proven fleet management system and rider-training, motorcycles can help transform health and welfare support.

The Flores Project is the right charity for politically aware motorcyclists and scooterists to support. The motorcycle is saving lives and money. Perhaps it is the turn of governments in developed countries to learn something from successes in Africa! This is where the idea for the Flores Project came from: Riders for Health

If your club or group is thinking of raising money for charity they'd love to hear from you.

To run a fleet of motorcycles for use by existing health providers (NGOs/health ministry) enabling health workers to take primary healthcare services, vaccines for kids, maternal and child health care, TB, Malaria, STD-HIV/AIDS, etc, to remote rural areas.  

The bikes arrive in Flores. Photos and story here.
