As an MSF donor, you fuel the delivery of medical aid to the people who need it most, no matter where they are or whether they have hit the headlines. Your money pays for millions of consultations, operations, treatments and vaccinations every year. As an organisation, we work to spend your money in the most efficient way and to help those in greatest need. But how do we do it?

At MSF we deliver care directly rather than through local partner organisations. We set up and run medical services, train staff and respond to fast moving emergencies, as well as longer-term crises. This means the money you trust to MSF is spent by MSF.

When you donate to MSF Czech Republic, the money is banked and then directed to the country where the need is greatest. This is coordinated across the 23 MSF offices and our projects in almost 70 countries, but none of the funds we send to the frontline are spent on international administration costs.

We raise and spend money based on our core principles – independence, neutrality and impartiality. In 2013, MSF CZ received CZK 41.7 million in donations from private donors and CZK 1,9 million as a grant from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, for a total of CZK 43.7 million. This means that 96% of our funds came from private donors, like you.

We used 83.1% of these donations to fund emergency aid projects for affected populations around the world (79.9% for projects executed in 2013 and 3.2% for projects executed in 2014) while 16.9% were used to cover the costs of our organization in the Czech Republic.

Your contributions to MSF CZ in 2013 reached 13 medical projects in 10 different countries. Below, you can find a list of the projects that received direct financing from MSF CZ during 2013.
