Our Fellow Associates THANKS TO OUR FELLOW ASSOCIATES (REGULAR DONORS), THE FIRST THING WE DO IN THE FACE OF CRISIS IS PROVIDE HELP, NOT RAISE FUNDS. Disasters, famines, epidemics and wars need an immediate response. It is important for Médecins Sans Frontières to reach trouble spots as soon as possible, with the hope of saving lives. In most cases, the sooner Médecins Sans Frontières can get there, the more lives we can save. It's that simple! To be ready to respond to an emergency anywhere in the world, at any time, requires enormous resources. That’s why regular monthly contributions made by our Fellow Associates are so important. The Fellow Associates program raises funds for MSF’s operations through regular monthly giving. These regular donations make the budget reliable and its allocation predictable, thereby facilitating the implementation of longer term projects like providing ARVs for AIDS patients. In addition to enabling us to plan for long term operations, our Fellow Associates help keep fundraising and administration costs at a minimum. As an MSF Fellow Associate, you will receive receipts for your pledge payments at the end of each semester and regular updates of our work in trouble spots around the world.
