Hospital installed by MSF to treat COVID-19 patients in Alcalá de Henares © Olmo Calvo /MSF Right now, because of COVID-19, you and I, our families and communities around the world are facing a global emergency that threatens all of us and is on course to put many people at risk. This emergency is already overwhelming some of the world’ most organized and well-resourced healthcare systems and is affecting people’s ability to access essential care on a global scale. As the impact of COVID-19 continues to spread, the capacity of every affected country’s medical infrastructure will come under strain. Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF/ Doctors Without Borders)’s core function is to provide essential, lifesaving medical care to people and places around the world where pre-existing health systems cannot (or will not) reach. That means MSF takes action wherever and whenever people do not have access to urgently needed health services as a result of disease, disaster, conflict or neglect. We are especially concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable people living in precarious conditions or with limited access to healthcare-such as those trapped in overcrowded refugee camps in Greece or Bangladesh, or in conflict zones like Yemen, South Sudan or Syria. People who are already vulnerable, and who struggle to access the care they need, are at even greater risk from this pandemic. MSF has announced the launch of the COVID-19 Crisis Fund to raise urgently needed funds to support our emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic. MSF Korea seeks to raise 1.1 billion Korean Won for the COVID-19 Crisis Fund. The funds will specifically support the development of dedicated COVID-19 programs and the adaptation of ongoing programs that are affected by the consequences of COVID-19. It enables supporters like you, to specially designate towards MSF’s global COVID-19 response efforts. We are asking you to support our COVID-19 Crisis Fund. Independent funding will be more essential than ever to allow us to prepare and respond swiftly to the COVID-19 pandemic.
