The Importance of Giving Back

Having been big admirers of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) for many years now, we are excited to announce our donation campaign in support of their extraordinary work. Considering its global reach in over 71 countries, we have consolidated all of our charitable donations to this one medical humanitarian organization. Beginning December 1, 2018 and continuing through 2019, Kipling & Clark will donate 1% of each global private tour sale cost to Doctors Without Borders. Based on our clients’ enthusiastic feedback in our promotion of MSF’s efforts, we are truly grateful for the opportunity to offer our support in this way.

DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an independent, medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, natural disasters, and exclusion from health care, without regard to race, religion, or political affiliation.  On any given day, in over 71 countries, more than 35,000 individuals, representing dozens of nationalities, assist people caught in crises around the world. They are doctors, nurses, logistics experts, administrators, epidemiologists, laboratory technicians, mental health professionals, and others whose work is guided by humanitarian principles and medical ethics. MSF medical teams conduct evaluations on the ground to determine a population’s medical needs before opening programs, aiming to fill existing gaps (rather than replicating services that are already offered) or reach neglected communities.  Over the years, the organization has been the recipient of several awards that recognize its work, including the 1998 Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize, the 1999 Nobel Peace Prize, the 2012 J. William Fulbright Prize for International Understanding, the 2015 Lasker-Bloomberg Public Service Award, and the 2017 Pardes Humanitarian Prize for Mental Health.
