- Medicins sans frontieres Firenze – non-governmental organisation which provides essential medical aid to victims of humanitarian disasters and war-torn regions. Local groups usually are engaged in the organisation of events with the aim of raising awareness on what the organisation does, informing what is the situation in different countries (including Italy) and raising funds. The Florence group organises meetings, book presentations, projections of documentary films, exhibitions, Christmas markets and much more.
