Médecins Sans Frontières

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is one of the world's leading international medical humanitarian organisations. We provide medical assistance to people affected by conflicts, epidemics, disasters or exclusion from healthcare in 74 countries. For over 50 years, our actions have been guided by medical ethics and the principles of impartiality, independence and neutrality.

The Luxembourg section of MSF was created in 1986 and houses the operational research unit, known as LuxOR (Luxembourg Operational Research).

Who is MSF? What do we do?

Our activity in 2023

Conflict was a major driver of human suffering and vulnerability in 2023, causing many thousands of deaths worldwide and displacing record numbers of people. As in previous years, assisting communities affected by violence was a significant component of MSF programmes. We also responded to disasters and disease outbreaks, and worked to improve healthcare for refugees, migrants and other marginalised people.

In Luxembourg, MSF was able to count on the support of nearly 27,000 active donors for more than 9.6 million euros raised, 85% of which went towards our social mission.

In 2023, your support was invaluable, because it alone enabled us to take action.

We go where it hurts.

Médecins Sans Frontières is present in over 70 countries worldwide. We are driven by impact, not media visibility. We go where it hurts, where our teams in the field can make the most significant difference. It's on these themes that we're launching an awareness-raising campaign across Luxembourg that aims to reveal forgotten crises, those places in the world where needs are crying out but attention is rare.
