The MSF Poland Branch Office raises private funds for MSF’s work and mission, attracts qualified and experienced field workers from Poland, bears witness about the plight of the people we treat and strengthen humanitarian discourses.
Being employed by MSF means adhering to MSF’s humanitarian principles: neutrality, impartiality and independence. The beneficiaries of MSF – the patients – are at core of anything that MSF does. Medical ethics and volunteerism are part of the MSF spirit.
