This helps to ensure operational independence and flexibility. The remaining funds come from governments and international organisations.
When we work in contexts where there are many parties to a conflict and humanitarian assistance is at risk of abuse, we rely solely on private donations to fund our activities.
Since 2016, we have decided to no longer accept funds from EU member states and institutions, in opposition to their damaging deterrence policies.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we maintain reserves that allow us to respond immediately to a crisis without having to wait for fundraising.
We work to spend the raised money in the most efficient way and to help those in greatest need.
The use of MSF funds is tightly controlled and our audited financial reports are publicly available.
