    Photo exhibition: MSF 50 years of humanity

    Photography has been part of the DNA of Médecins Sans Frontières since its creation in 1971.

    During these 50 years, new and renowned photography professionals and MSF humanitarian staff have met in some of the most serious crises of this half-century.

    It is from this experience and shared enthusiasm that various photo exhibitions have been created throughout our history. These exhibitions aim to inspire and educate the public through humanitarian photography.
    Through these exhibitions, we want to draw attention to issues that affect the most vulnerable populations and that are relegated to the background in the news.

    This exhibition addresses MSF's work through 5 main themes:

    • Natural disasters
    • Medical action
    • Conflict
    • People on the move
    • Associative life / humanitarian commitment

    The exhibition will be visible during the whole weekend.
