In 2021, Redox has decided to establish a philanthropic relationship with Médecins Sans Frontières in support of the urgent work they do around the world. Our support will allow Médecins Sans Frontières teams to react to emergencies as they occur and give high-quality care to those who need it most. This is the beginning of a relationship and we are excited to continue working with Médecins Sans Frontières through regular donations and fundraising programs.
Médecins Sans Frontières is an international humanitarian organization that delivers impartial medical aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, natural disasters, and exclusion from health care in more than 72 countries. Médecins Sans Frontières have provided and continue to provide urgent short and long-term COVID-19 responses in dozens of countries.
In 2019, Médecins Sans Frontières consulted with more than 10 million outpatients, vaccinated over 1.3 million people against measles, and assisted in the deliveries of over 329,900 babies. In many of the world’s most challenging locations, their impact also included admitting more than 76,000 severely malnourished children to inpatient feeding programs, performing more than 112,000 major surgical interventions, and providing in excess of 400,000 mental health consultations.
“We recognize that we must work in new ways to address the unprecedented challenges the world is facing,” said Sales Manager & Director Raimond Coneliano. “Redox is delighted and proud to be putting our commitment into action and by supporting the dedicated team at Médecins Sans Frontières, we hope to make a fundamental difference to lives across the globe.”
“On behalf of Médecins Sans Frontières, and most importantly on behalf of the patients that we treat, I am deeply grateful for this expression of support,” said Ruth Molloy, major donor manager for Médecins Sans Frontières Australia and Médecins Sans Frontières New Zealand. “For 50 years, Médecins Sans Frontières has been a movement based on the strength of shared humanitarian responsibility, and I thank the staff of Redox for sharing our commitment to global medical aid, provided without regard for race, religion, creed or political conviction.”
Médecins Sans Frontières is an independent, self-governed, non-profit organisation, committed to addressing the suffering of people and providing medical care to help people survive catastrophic situations, where communities and health structures may be overwhelmed. Médecins Sans Frontières offers assistance based on need and irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation, guided by medical ethics and the humanitarian principles of independence, neutrality and impartiality.
