Médicins sans Frontières Netherlands is Schiphol's new social partner

Royal Schiphol Group and Médecins Sans Frontières Netherlands (MSF) entered into a partnership for the next three years to raise funds and awareness for medical care in crisis situations. MSF Netherlands – known in the Netherlands as Artsen zonder Grenzen – succeeds Amref Flying Doctors as Royal Schiphol Group’s social partner.  

MSF Netherlands and Schiphol share a commitment to making medical care possible where it is needed most. One way in which Schiphol and MSF Netherlands aim to do this is by encouraging donations through collection points in the airport’s terminal building. This initiative will be run in close cooperation with In2Retail, which is responsible for processing the revenue generated by the collection points.  

Help is needed all over the world. Schiphol connects the Netherlands to the rest of the world and people with each other. Through this collaboration, we hope to do our bit and make medical care more accessible for everyone.

Ruud Sondag, CEO Royal Schiphol Group

Thanks in part to Royal Schiphol Group, we can reach people in need worldwide with life-saving supplies such as medicines, clean drinking water and vaccines and, of course, our doctors and nurses. We are therefore very happy with this collaboration and greatly appreciate Royal Schiphol Group as a partner. We hope that through this collaboration, travellers will get to know us even better and will support us in our work.
