Revolut uses in-app donations feature to support Médecins Sans Frontières

Mobile fintech, Revolut, has partnered with Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) / Doctors without Borders to provide support for communities affected by coronavirus.

Revolut customers in EEA countries will be able to donate via the in-app Donations feature, which allows all users to round up their card payments and donate the difference to MSF emergency medical teams who are dedicated to helping those most in need during the pandemic. Customers can also donate by setting up a recurring payment or making one-off donations.

The coming months are going to present MSF with huge challenges, both in treating people affected by COVID-19 and protecting the people already under their care making charitable donations more important than they have ever been.

MSF is very grateful to have the support of Revolut and its customers as we respond to the coronavirus pandemic. With your help, we will be able to provide medical care and assistance to some of those who are most at risk from this outbreak – whether that’s people already suffering from long-running conflicts in Yemen or Syria, or vulnerable groups such as older people, refugees and the homeless within Europe.

One hundred percent of the amount donated by customers goes to MSF, with Revolut charging no fees to donate. There is no minimum donation amount and the feature can be turned on and off by customers at any time.
