Project Information

Description

A fundraising event for knitters worldwide to make a difference. All proceeds raised from the charity bingo goes towards Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), an international humanitarian aid organisation that provides emergency medical assistance to populations in danger in more than 70 countries. MSF goes where other relief organizations (NGO's) will not. Where circumstances are the most desperate, the most dangerous and the most hopeless... you will find Médecins Sans Frontières. MSF is transparent and neutral without any political or religious affiliations, and does not accept donations from Pharmaceutical companies or companies that make Tobacco or Alcohol. Part of their job is to witness and report violations of human rights and dignity. MSF helps all persons who need them, regardless of their race, religion, politics or gender. MSF won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.

MSF is dedicated to serving not just those people suffering from disasters in the spotlight such as the Asian Tsunami, which killed 150 000 people, but other tragedies in the world that are receiving less media, and less help, such as in the Congo, where 150 000 are killed every five months, or in Africa, where there are 25 million people between the ages of 15 and 49 living with HIV/AIDS. 58% are women.

Play bingo with us in London England, or join our online raffle without borders. Get a ticket by donating to MSF via their p/hop page (http://www.msf.org.uk/phop.aspx) and putting 'MakniChabi' in the comments section on the justgiving page.
