How Warehouse Works

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare. We offer assistance to people based on need and irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation.

The online MSF Warehouse is a donation platform based on the e-cart concept. The items you see on this site are the materials and supplies from actual MSF warehouse located around the world, with the largest in Bordeaux, France. MSF has a sophisticated logistics system that allows critical supplies stored at the warehouses to be sent to projects in Africa, Asia, Latin America and other parts of the world rapidly, as soon as they are needed.

In the MSF Warehouse website, you can find a wide variety of supplies and kits used in MSF aid projects, as well as some of the key roles of the people who carry out our aid work and learn how we use them in our work. You can choose these items as a donation or as a one-of-a-kind gift to honour your friends and loved ones.

Your purchase is a symbolic gift. This means that when you choose an item you are contributing to the overall mission of MSF, and not necessarily the items you purchased. All the items you see in the MSF Warehouse are actual products, and are used by MSF in projects around the world. However the volume of items needed and the exact time they may be required is difficult to predict. Your gift may be used to fund any relief items and activities MSF engages in to help people in need of emergency medical care.

The items in MSF Warehouse website are divided into six main categories: Emergency Supplies, Logistics, Send A Doctor, Medical Equipment & Supplies, Medicines & Gift Ideas.
