Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is delighted to join with Martine Larroque as she undertakes the challenge of a lifetime.

Martine Larroque is a French experience climber, based in Dubai, UAE. Her attempt to climb Everest this spring is dedicated to MSF for enduring challenges and hard tough missions since they have started.

The year 2001 is the Year of Refugees, and 2002 will be the Year of the Mountain. With the combination of these strong occasions, Martine felt it was the right time to go for the biggest challenge of a lifetime.

MSF teams around the world face incredible challenges every day trying to provide emergency medical aid wherever it is needed, regardless of race, religion, politics or sex. MSF received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999 for it’s humanitarian relief work in over 80 countries worldwide. Martine’s determination to bring MSF to the attention of the community and her ascent of Everest make a perfect match.
