Currently my company, BlackRock, is matching 2:1 donations specifically for the refugee crisis. I ask you to reflect about how lucky we are in our own lives and to think about helping others who struggle everyday for survival. Your donation will go to Doctors Without Borders but specifically for the refugee efforts of internally displaced people (ranging from food, vaccinations, refugee camps, child birth assistance). More background: Nearly 60 million people are currently fleeing conflict or persecution around the world. Due to their race, religion, or nationality, these people’s homes are no longer safe places to live and their governments no longer provide them with protection. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) works around the world to provide refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) with everything they need from psychological care to lifesaving nutrition. We set up hospitals in refugee camps, we help women give birth safely, we vaccinate children to prevent epidemics, and we provide access to safe drinking water. This donation will help Doctors Without Borders assist refugees and internally displaced persons fleeing from conflicts in Syria and other countries in the Middle East.
