ABOUT DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) are actively working on preparing medical and humanitarian supplies to be sent to Gaza when access is open and they are reiterating calls for the delivery of humanitarian aid into Gaza, including via the Rafah crossing. MSF calls for the urgent establishment of safe spaces and safe passage for civilians trapped in Gaza. People who are wounded or sick must receive medical care. Medical facilities and personnel must be protected and respected; hospitals and ambulances are not targets.
Every evening at 20:23, CIRCA stops the clock across a global network of public screens and mobilises the world’s greatest creative minds to broadcast unique works of art that consider our world, circa now.

Since launching in October 2020 on London’s Piccadilly Lights, CIRCA has distributed over £700,000 in cash grants, scholarships and donations.
Throughout November, proceeds from the sale of each print will be donated to Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders, an international humanitarian organisation providing urgent medical care in more than 75 countries.
