Please could I ask all of my UK friends to consider writing to their MP using the template below to ask for support for an independent enquiry into the attack. Nothing short of this is acceptable and it needs people in power to stand up and be counted. Thank you if you can take the time to adapt the letter and write.

For Harrogate the MP is Mr Andrew Jones c/o 57 East Parade, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG1 5LQ

Dear Mr/Ms/Mrs x

I am a (insert current role) based at (insert institution) specialising in xyz but am writing to you in a personal capacity as a constituent. Although I now work for (the NHS/ as appropriate), I have a deep interest in global health, and volunteered/worked for Medecins Sans Frontieres in (location, date).

I wanted to take this opportunity to express my concern about the recent attack on the MSF hospital in Kunduz and to urge you to support MSF’s demand for an independent inquiry.

Currently the number of patients and MSF staff killed in the attack stands at 22. It has left MSF unable to operate in Kunduz. The implications of such a loss are huge for the Afghan people; tens of thousands will no longer be able to access healthcare when they need it most.

At this time of mourning, MSF remains resolute in their commitment to defending the provision of healthcare in conflict zones. They are seeking support for an independent investigation by the International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission. MSF’s believe it is the only body able to ensure answers for what happened in Kunduz, how it happened, and why it happened.

MSF is asking signatory States (including the UK) to activate the Commission. As an MP, we hope you will be vocal in your support for this demand.

This issue is not just about Kunduz, it is about the safety of patients and clinicians all over the world. It requires urgent political attention from across the major parties.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Kunduz Doctors Without Borders
