TRANSCRIPT

Medicins Sans Frontiers, meaning Doctors Without Borders, is an international humanitarian aid organization that provides emergency medical assistance to people in crisis, in over 60 countries

and this one, I don’t think – I don’t think you can imagine what she looked like, you couldn’t imagine how bad she was

Doctors, surgeons, drivers, administrators, logisticians, nurses…

Every year over 20,000 Medicins Sans Frontiers staff provide emergency medical care and relief supplies to millions of people in distress

We strive to provide our patients with the best possible care, adapting advances in medical knowledge and research for patients living in the most difficult crises

I appeal here today to his Excellency, the Ambassador of Russia, and through him, to President Yeltsin, to stop the bombing of defenseless civilians in Chechnya

This Nobel Peace Prize is an acknowledgement of independent humanitarianism, free all political and military influence

We work in 65 countries around the world including Kygystan, Cameroon, Burundi, Armenia, South Africa, Liberia, Syria, China, Niger, Uganda, Djibouti, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, India, Somalia, Zimbabwe and Pakistan

Our patients are people excluded from society and without access to health care
They work alongside people struggling to survive
violence or neglect,
widespread disease or epidemics,
war and political instability,
malaria, aids and tuberculosis,
victims of violence, most often have a sexual nature,
malnutrition,
neglected diseases,
violence in urban settings,
natural disasters.

This is only possible thanks to the financial support from more than three million donors worldwide.
