2012 Global Atheist Convention Supports Médecins Sans Frontières

The Atheist Foundation of Australia is proud to announce that half of the proceeds from the Global Atheist Convention’s Saturday Night Gala Charity Dinner will be donated to the Nobel Peace Prize-winning organisation Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).

Over the last forty years, MSF has provided invaluable medical assistance to more than eighty countries around the globe. As a secular, non-governmental organisation existing almost entirely on donor support, MSF has repeatedly demonstrated its deep commitment to assisting populations in distress, survivors of environmental disasters and victims of armed conflict. Additionally, MSF provides health care support such as mass vaccination programs and training of local medical staff to help build up existing infrastructure. As stated in their charter, MSF observes neutrality and impartiality in the name of universal medical ethics and the right to humanitarian assistance, providing support without discrimination and irrespective of race, religion, creed or political affiliation.

Tickets for the Global Atheist Convention’s Saturday Night Gala Charity Dinner include an elegant all inclusive three course meal, an evening of entertainment and the chance to socialise with fellow attendees and featured speakers. Due to an unprecedented volume of ticket sales, the Atheist Foundation of Australia has recently upgraded the size of the Gala venue to maximum capacity to accommodate high demand. It is expected that the event will sell out and attendees are encouraged to purchase their tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

In combining the Gala Charity Dinner donation with the generosity of attendees, the Atheist Foundation of Australia envisions providing valuable support for the outstanding contribution that MSF makes to human health and well-being in resource-poor regions around the world. Opportunities will also be made throughout the Global Atheist Convention for individual delegates to make personal donations to MSF.
