Bupa International launches partnership with Medécins Sans Frontières

Bupa International, the expatriate health insurer, has joined forces with the international charity, Medécins Sans Frontières (MSF), to raise money for people with HIV/AIDS in Kenya and those with malaria in Sierra Leone.

To launch the new partnership, Bupa International is making an initial donation of £15,000 to MSF.  A further £5,000 will be raised for the charity over the course of the next year by Bupa International's employees in Brighton, Miami and Copenhagen.  This money will then be fund matched by Bupa, as a part of its Community Connections charitable giving programme, bringing the company's total donation to £25,000.

Tim Slee, global sales director, Bupa International, explains the rationale behind the new charitable partnership: "We want to support a charity which shares our healthcare focus and has an international presence.  It is also important that our employees can get involved with our partner charity at a number of levels to maximise staff participation.  MSF, as an international humanitarian medical aid organisation, is the perfect match."

James Kliffen, head of fundraising at MSF, comments: "We provide healthcare and medical training to populations in more than 60 countries, often in war-torn countries or those facing endemic disease.  The donations we receive are invaluable in helping some of the most afflicted and marginalised people in the world.  We look forward to working together with Bupa International in the coming months."
