You can make a valuable contribution to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) beyond donating money. Become part of the MSF movement by sharing some of your time to help MSF ensure we can reach and assist people most affected by conflict, disease, neglect and disaster.

Your involvement can be as simple as signing and encouraging others to sign a petition, participating in an event or volunteering to help in our offices. Students in universities with nursing, medicine or other healthcare programs can support us by getting involved with their school’s Friends of MSF group.

The MSF teams are leaving Lotumbe after several months of MSF presence in this remote health zone, which had Ebola positive cases at the beginning of the epidemic. For several weeks, MSF deployed a mobile multidisciplinary team there, which carried out interventions in different targeted villages in the area (reinforcement of ICP and construction of isolation structures, epidemiological surveillance, closer contact and health promotion with the communities, training of local medical staff, free medical consultations, etc.). MSF is withdrawing from the area, following the handover to the Congolese Ministry of Health, and the probable announcement of the imminent end of this 11th epidemic.

MSF se désengage de la zone, suite à la passation au Ministère congolais de la Santé, et à l’annonce probable de fin prochaine de cette 11e épidémie. Lotumbe.
