#fotoscontralacovid is a charity campaign that invites you to acquire original prints at www.fotoscontralacovid.com before Thursday, April 30 to support the emergency COVID-19 fund in favour of Médicos Sin Fronteras, the Spanish unit of Doctors Without Borders. The international medical humanitarian organization is intensely working against this crisis in Spain, giving a support thanks to their experience in health emergencies and contributing to decongest hospitals and intensive care units. Furthermore, they continue working in other vulnerable countries around the world.
The photographers who donated an image include Pep Bonet, Joan Fontcuberta, Cristina De Middel, Romina Ressia, Natalie Keyssar, Moises Saman, Laia Abril, Myriam Meloni, Musuk Nolte, Luis Cobelo, and many other recognised names of the international scene. The prints are in 20x30 cm format and costs €100 each. The money raised from the sale will be managed by NOISE Photo, the NGO based in Barcelona that will be responsible for delivering it - deducting the costs of production and €15 for the shipping costs - to Doctors Without Borders. This campaign follows in the wake of the campaign #100FotografiperBergamo that managed to raise € 726,000 for the hospital of Bergamo (Italy).
There is time until 17 May to get your prints and support the campaign at www.fotoscontralacovid.com.
Below you can find a selection of images, while you can follow the campaign on Instagram at @fotoscontralacovid and thanks to these hashtags: #fotoscontralacovid #medicossinfronteras
