Orienteering Competition – MSF

Digitizing the Traditional Fundraising Event

Project

Médecins Sans Frontières is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare.

“MSF Orienteering Competition” allows participants to experience the challenges faced by MSF field workers when they walk through some of the world’s most testing environments to provide medical aid to patients in the front line. The participants have raised over HK$5.1 million in 2014 and It has been the largest orienteering competition in Hong Kong for those 13 consecutive years.

Since 2012, MSF has been working with VICOSYS to put the enrollment and donation online for an effective way to organize the competition.
