Please enquire at your university about Friends of MSF (FoMSF) Societies. FoMSF are student based societies in universities around South Africa and the UK. FoMSF is run on a voluntary basis.

Individual groups engage in various activities, like inviting returned volunteers to speak, film screenings, and other fundraising and careers-focused events.

All FoMSF groups share three main objectives:

1) To raise awareness of MSF’s work and humanitarian issues

2) To encourage students to consider working for organisations such as MSF

3) To raise funds for MSF

Currently, FoMSF runs at 5 South African Universities, WITS, TUKS, UCT, Stellenbosch and UKZN.
