TNT Express backs Doctors Without Borders
Dubai, July 6, 2014
TNT Express Middle East and Sub-continent Associates, donated the amount of EUR6,500 ($8,840) to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), also known as Doctors without Borders.
MSF is an international independent humanitarian medical aid organisation which provides emergency medical aid where needed; regardless of race, religion, politics or gender in more than 70 countries. MSF relies greatly on the support of private donations, which account for 90 per cent of its funds, and ensure its independence of action in complex crises.
Ghada Hatim, executive director for MSF's UAE Regional Office, said: "We are delighted at TNT’s generosity in contributing to MSF's work within the Middle East region. Donations like these help our teams deliver quality medical care to patients caught in conflict."
This contribution will support MSF in buying the necessary drugs, dressings and instruments to deliver life-saving assistance to wounded, burned or sick patients who have sustained injuries in conflict. The material will be allocated to support MSF's patients in the Middle East covering Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
James Edgeworth, TNT Express Middle East sales and marketing director, said: "This donation demonstrates our commitment to giving back to the communities in which we operate in. We are pleased to provide our support to MSF helping them in saving lives in areas of conflict." – TradeArabia News Service
