The MSF Solidarity Challenge – 27 May 2017

This year, by participating in the MSF solidarity Challenge, your donation will contribute to the total renovation and equipping of the Bar Elias Hospital in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, located 20 kilometers from the Syrian border.
This hospital, managed entirely by MSF, will provide hospitalization and much needed care for Syrian refugees, fleeing the war, as well as the impoverished local population. Take on the "MSF Solidarity Challenge" and help make this ambitious project become a reality!

  • With 200 € MSF will be able to equip two mobile clinics with drugs and medical equipment
  • 500 € will allow the MSF teams to treat 25 female patients in order to prevent the mother-child transmission of HIV, the AIDS virus.
  • With 700 € you will finance a basic medical kit containing the basic drugs and medical equipment which allows support for 1 000 people for a period of 3 months
  • Collect 2.088 € and support a fully equipped dispensary tent which will ensure first aid in the event of a natural disaster or in the case of precarious situations.

step 2: Change this sporting challenge into the MSF Solidarity Challenge

  • Register for the MSF Solidarity Challenge by completing this form
  • Respond to the challenge by collecting a minimum of €200 for MSF and wear our colours on the day of the race, with the MSF shirt that we are giving away!

step 3: Make the team spirit count !

  • Please feel free to involve your friends and acquaintances: the MSF Solidarity Challenge is also an opportunity to reinforce your links with each other for a good cause. Families, friends, colleagues: everyone can support your collecting campaign!
  • You may opt to use an on-line collecting platform, which is secure and easy to use, such as Alvarum. All you need to do is to create your personal page, on which all those who want to support you can do so directly for a few clicks.

Your supporters can also make a direct transfer to our account (CCPL LU 75 1111 0000 4848 0000) to increase the amount you collect! When doing so they should indicate your name and include the name “Défi Solidaire” [“Solidarity Challenge”] in their banking communication.
