Story

Please follow my fundraising at www.andy4msf.com

My name is Andy Dennis, I am a Staff Nurse in the Endoscopy Unit at Harrogate District Hospital.  I also work with Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders).

MSF is a non-political,non-religious medical organisation working in around 60 countries.Caring for those suffering through conflict, epidemic and natural disaster.

I have worked with MSF in Uganda (2005) South Sudan (2008 & 2013) and in the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone in 2014.

The first mission was based in Displaced Persons camps in the north of Uganda. 

In the second I was involved in setting up health care clinics in South Sudan on the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo. The populations of both regions were terrorised by a rebel group called the Lords Resistance Army who have maimed tortured, displaced or killed millions over a 20+ year period.

My 2013 mission was spent running the Nutrition project at Leer Hospital in Unity State, South Sudan. TheHospital was attacked and destroyed in January 2014. MSF is already busy rebuilding. 

In November - December 2014 I worked in MSF's Kailahun Ebola management Centre in the most moving month of my life. My friend and colleague Dr Anna Simon and myself have since documented this
experience in a book called Ebola – behind the mask.

In 2011 I set out to raise £100,000 for MSF and will keep going until it is achieved.

In May 2016 Tracey Hill (my girlfriend) and I set off on a 4000-mile fundraising cycle ride from San Francisco to New York. This remarkable journey took us 71 days to complete. We met some extraordinarily kind and generous people on the trip. We conquered mountains, deserts, winds and our own limits as we crossed the US.

The need goes on and the fundraising goes on. Please join and support our efforts to help MSF. Your support and donations save lives.

I fund all aspects of my projects myself and ALL of the money donated goes to MSF.
