SBGA Supports International Humanitarian Program
Irvine, CA; Jan. 2012 – As part of their ongoing commitment to supporting charitable organizations, Merchant Services, an Alliance Partner of SBGA, is donating $500 to Doctors Without Borders, an International Medical Humanitarian Program.
Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971. Today, MSF provides independent, impartial assistance in more than 60 countries to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters.
Nathan Jurczyk, Vice President of Merchant Services, had this to say about his company’s charitable contribution. “We are pleased to support organizations like DoctorsWithout Borders who provide critical assistance to those in need around the globe. Donating to worthy non-profit efforts is a cornerstone to our business model and we are proud to continue our legacy of giving back.”
Today, in places such as Chad, Niger, Kenya, Bangladesh, and Sudan, Doctors Without Borders runs vaccination campaigns and water-and-sanitation projects, provides basic medical care through clinics and mobile clinics, builds or rehabilitates hospitals, treats malnutrition and infectious diseases, and provides mental health support.
Merchant Services has been committed to giving back to the community since its inception in 1995. Its team continues to partner with multiple local, national and international organizations to meet their vision of continuously acting in a socially responsible manner, through the investment of hundreds of thousands of dollars to community strengthening organizations.
