Our designated Charities

From Autumn 2010 as an Etsy charitable shop, made4aid has donated all profits to

Médecins sans Frontières / Doctors without Borders

MSF is an independent humanitarian medical aid organisation which began with the work of some French doctors in Nigeria in the 1970’s. It has grown into an international and Nobel Peace Prize winning organisation which is committed to providing medical aid where it is most needed regardless of race, religion, politics or gender.

MSF are usually to be found on the frontlines working in disaster situations such as Ethiopia in the 1980’s, Somalia and Rwanda in the 1990’s,  Haiti and Pakistan in 2010, Japan in 2011.

We had expected to be giving, also, to the World Food Programme USA, but the fees for processing donations to overseas organisations are quite high, so for the time being we will be giving all proceeds to Médicins sans Frontières / Doctors without Borders.
