With a strong desire to give back, Teleconsult actively sponsors Doctors Without Borders, an organization that holds a special place in our hearts. It is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) of French origin known for its projects in conflict zones, during natural disasters and in countries affected by endemic diseases.
Today, Doctors Without Borders remains steadfast in its dedication to providing crucial assistance and medical care to people facing crises all over the globe. With an extensive network of more than 65,000 humanitarian workers spread across 70 countries, they swiftly respond to those affected by natural disasters, disease outbreaks, conflicts, and wars. The organization’s unwavering commitment to remaining neutral, impartial, and independent ensures that aid reaches anyone, anywhere, without discrimination.
The exceptional efforts of Doctors Without Borders have not gone unnoticed. In 1999, they were rightfully honored with the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize, recognizing the tremendous impact of their selfless work on promoting peace and alleviating suffering.
As we stand in solidarity with this noble cause, we are inspired by the tireless dedication of Doctors Without Borders and share their vision of creating a world where access to quality healthcare knows no boundaries. Together, we forge ahead, making a positive impact and providing hope to those facing the most challenging circumstances. Through our support, we believe in contributing to a better, healthier, and more compassionate world for all. Read more about them here.
