We act for people: B&C Corporate Partner of Médecins Sans Frontières

The last couple of years have shown us how fragile health can be, even here in the developed world where we have accessible and high-quality healthcare. It has only served to reinforce how big the need is elsewhere in the world, where even the most basic health services are often out of reach of much of the population. Thanks to our official partnership with MSF (Médecins Sans Frontières), we now help support medical and humanitarian aid around the world.

B&C acts for people through its corporate partnership with MSF

At B&C we are constantly looking for ways in which we can actively bring to life our commitment to people. Better provision of healthcare, primarily of course in Bangladesh where we are closely bound to the local population, is now possible thanks to our corporate partnership with MSF (Médecins Sans Frontières).

MSF provides medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare. In Bangladesh for example, MSF runs an occupational health programme for people living in the Kamrangirchar slum area of Bangladesh’s capital, Dhaka. Activities include curative care for people diagnosed with illnesses/morbidities, preventive services (e.g tetanus vaccination) and more. In just one year, MSF teams conducted almost 5,000 occupational health consultations in Kamrangirchar. We’re proud to be able to contribute to their efforts.

There is also a real crisis in Pakistan, where catastrophic flooding in Autumn 2022 has devastated homes and livelihoods, cutting off whole communities from food and water supplies and creating breeding grounds for diseases. These communities are ones we know and care about, as some are involved in the production of our garments. MSF are on the ground there, providing much needed humanitarian aid, which we also support through our partnership and contribution to their emergency fund.
