Hospital St. Louis (Doctors Without Borders (MSF)
'Médecins Sans Frontières' (MSF) or 'Doctors Without Border' is a foundation originally created in 1971 by a small group of French doctors in the aftermath of Biafra War who believed that every person has right to medical care irrespective of their belief, race, creed or political affiliation. MSF is an international and federal non-governmental humanitarian-aid organization, winner of Nobel Peace Prize.
