2015 Team Médecins Sans Frontières - Paris Marathon

by Anthony Jouannic for Médecins Sans Frontières


About my fundraiser

Marathon de Paris 2015,

Hey! My name is Anthony and I have run many marathons and ultramarathons in the past and this one will be no different. Except that I will be running it for a medical humanitarian organisation that does outstanding work supporting people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from basic healthcare. (Nobel Peace Prize in 1999)

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), litterally translated to Doctors without Borders, are helping people in Palestine after the israeli bombings. MSF are deployed in Irak where ISIS is terrorizing the population, MSF are in first line fighting the Ebola crisis in West Africa by deploying human resources and mobile hospitals.
Médecins Sans Frontières are deployed in the Philipines to rescue the people victim of the recent Typhoon. They are present in South Sudan helping refugees of the political crisis that doesn't end. They treat thousands of people from HIV and Tuberculosis in India.

Médecins Sans Frontières are everywhere in the world ! and today more than ever they need fundings to support their operations.

Médecins Sans Frontières offers assistance to people based on need, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation and WE need to help them !

They are sacrificing their lives for one purpose: The right to basic health care, the right to live !

I will run the Paris Marathon as an Ambassador for Médecins Sans Frontières with their colors and with their message. I have one aim: Bring awareness and support them in every way I can.

For 18 Euros, one box of morphine can be bought in Gaza,
For 49 Euros, a toolkit to clean a deep wound can be distributed,
And for 878 Euros, it is an emergency kit with surgery tools, medicines and bandages that can be used. That means a lot of lifes saved!

All donations through this page are going directly to Médecins Sans Frontières without any intermediary. EVERY LITTLE BIT COUNTS !

It is easy and 100% secure.

Thank you for your help!
