Dandarah Partners with MSF in Response to COVID-19
Every purchase counts!
Dandarah is working with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in support of their work on the COVID-19 response by donating 10% of Dandarah's proceeds from retail and wholesale sales.
This partnership started on April 8, 2020 with an original end date of June 30, which is now extended to August 31, 2020 to provide further support.
This means every purchase you do at Dandarah has now double impact:
- It supports and empowers Dandarah's artisans
- It also supports the fight against COVID-19

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontiers (MSF)’s core function is to provide essential, lifesaving medical care to people and places around the world where pre-existing health systems cannot (or will not) reach. That means MSF takes action wherever and whenever people do not have access to urgently needed health services as a result of disease, disaster, conflict or neglect.
MSF is especially concerned about the impact COVID-19 will have on vulnerable people living in precarious conditions or with limited access to healthcare – such as those trapped in overcrowded refugee camps in Greece or Bangladesh, or in conflict zones like Yemen, South Sudan or Syria. People who are already vulnerable, and who struggle to access the care they need, are at even greater risk from this pandemic.
MSF is adapting their existing programs to prepare and support health systems as the COVID-19 pandemic expands further. They are also responding to new and emerging needs and will continue to do so where they can, particularly for vulnerable people living in precarious situations.
Some of these activities include: supporting existing hospitals and health systems and providing technical training and logistical support to manage the spread of COVID-19 around the world.
