Physicians Across Continents are non-governmental organisation (NGO), we are guided by our universal medical ethics and Islamic values. We are impartial, providing free medical care to people who need it. Regardless from what country you are from, which religion they belong to, or what their political affiliations are. All that matters is they are human beings in need.
In conflict situations and hostile environments Physicians Across Continents do not take sides we go and carry out where the need is greatest, thus making us independent. Hostilities need to be left at the gate.
We rarely take funds from governments or institutions for our work, we are funded by your donations, by your compassion and kindness. In emergency we do not need to wait for official funds or for the media to generate interest. Responding to an emergency when it happens as it happens. Our financial independence means the work you fund cannot be used by any government to further their political or military goals.
Community buy-in is a key strategy for Physicians Across Continents, we are not there as external force, we embedded ourselves with the communities we work with in order to leave a legacy. We do this through the community leaders, groups, local and national governments.
