Grand Duchess Maria Teresa attended a dinner last night to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Luxembourgish branch of the Médecins Sans Frontières, or Doctors Without Borders. Also present for the occasion was the Minister for Health, Lydia Mutsch. The Médicins Sans Frontières are an international humanitarian-aid non-governmental organization (NGO) and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, best known for its projects in war-torn regions and developing countries facing endemic diseases.  In 2015 over 30,000, mostly local, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals, logistical experts, water and sanitation engineers and administrators provided medical aid in over 70 countries.
