Humanitarianism through Art
A Fundraiser for Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Canada

Dates: Friday 25 September through Sunday 27 September 2009

Proudly sponsored by CKCU 93.1 FM

In collaboration with the Ottawa Month of Photography, La Petite Mort Gallery is proud to host its first fundraiser for Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Canada, the 1999 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is a private international association made up of doctors, health sector workers, and other professionals. They provide assistance to populations in distress, to victims of natural or man-made disasters, and to victims of armed conflict, and they do so irrespective of race, religion, creed, or political convictions.

The exhibition will include works by local, national, and international photographers who have donated one print each to assist this wonderful organization in their work. The price for each print will be $100 and all the profits will go to MSF Canada.

Julie Hodgson, who is organizing the fundraiser with Guy Bérubé, has been supporting MSF for over ten years and offers, “ I admire and appreciate the tremendous work being done in over 50 countries by MSF. I am also extremely grateful to the artists who have so generously donated their work and to Guy Bérubé for his kindness and openness in hosting this fundraiser.”
