I am always proud to have an association with Médecins Sans Frontières but to receive the following message today was incredible :

Dear Mr Dennis,
It gives me great pleasure to invite you to join us to celebrate the award of the Chatham House Prize to Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) at a gala dinner on Tuesday 13 October from 19:00 – 22:00 in central London.
You have been nominated by MSF UK to represent the many volunteers who have been fighting the battle against Ebola in West Africa.
“The 2015 Chatham House Prize is to be awarded to MSF in recognition of its work in combating the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa. MSF was among the first groups to respond to the epidemic in March of that year and remained engaged on the ground throughout the crisis, caring for the majority of patients in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. MSF leaders and staff were persistent and forceful in their action to halt the spread of the epidemic and, as a result, were instrumental in saving thousands of lives.”
