Arbutus for Humanity, an MSF Drive by
Just For Canadian Doctors/Dentists Magazine
With the current Syrian refugee crisis dominating the headlines, we are reminded that there are more than 60 million people around the world currently displaced from their homes, the highest number since the Second World War. Many are fleeing persecution, poverty and war in their home countries, but are forced by official barriers into underground human-trafficking networks. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) works on the migration routes along which many people travel, providing essential humanitarian care for those most at risk.
Just For Canadian Doctors magazine is proud to sponsor Arbutus for Humanity, an MSF drive for donations so your fellow Canadian physicians on the frontline can continue to provide urgent medical care. With a minimum donation of $20 by January 31st, 2016, your name will automatically be entered to win “Arbutus” an original oil on canvas (16” x 20”) by
Dr. Theo Dombrowski, a retired professor, artist, published author and MSF supporter from Vancouver Island.
Dr. Dombrowski has raised about $30,000 for MSF through sales of his books and paintings. Find out more about
Dr. Dombrowski’s work at www.theodombrowski.net.
To borrow from the beliefs of the Salish First Nation, the Arbutus tree is considered the “Tree of Knowledge” because it knows how to find the sun and it is most sacred because it symbolizes refuge and survival for the inhabitants of the vast Pacific Northwest region. Please make a donation so you can give a refugee in need the knowledge that their hardship will result in refuge and survival because of the work MSF is able to provide with the dedications of your fellow Canadian physicians. Your contributions will make a difference and are greatly appreciated.
